Pak­istan says In­dia killed seven troops in Kash­mir

The Myanmar Times - - World -

The Pak­istani mil­i­tary ac­cused In­dia of killing seven sol­diers in cross-bor­der fire in dis­puted Kash­mir, in what ap­peared to be an un­usu­ally high toll af­ter months of surg­ing ten­sions be­tween the nu­clear-armed neigh­bours. There was no im­me­di­ate re­sponse to the al­le­ga­tion from In­dian of­fi­cials. There have been re­peated out­breaks of cross-bor­der fir­ing, with both sides re­port­ing deaths and in­juries in­clud­ing of civil­ians, though the deaths of seven sol­diers in what ap­peared to be one such in­ci­dent is rel­a­tively high. Pak­istani Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif ac­cused In­dia of car­ry­ing out the lat­est cross-bor­der skir­mishes in an ef­fort to dis­tract the world’s at­ten­tion from the vi­o­lent protests.
