ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s military says “unprovoked” cross-border shelling from India has killed at least six civilians and wounded 46 more.

An official statement said Friday 22 women were among those wounded. “Pakistani troops are befittingly responding to Indian firing,” it added.

Indian media quote border officials on their side as saying that three civilians were killed and 16 injured in the pre-dawn “unprovoked heavy and indiscriminate shelling by Pakistan” in the area. The border officials say that India has “appropriately” retaliated.

The skirmishes are happening along a 200-kilometer so-called Working Boundary that separates Pakistan’s Punjab province from the Indian-controlled portion of the divided Kashmir region.
