ISLAMABAD – Pakistan's military says Indian border guards' "unprovoked firing" across the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir has killed a 13-year-old girl and wounded a child.
In a statement, the military says the latest cease-fire violation took place Saturday near the city of Sialkot. It says Pakistani security forces returned fire.
India has blamed Pakistani troops for initiating the fire.
Such incidents have increased since Wednesday when Islamabad accused India of killing two Pakistani soldiers. Pakistan says the two slain soldiers had been invited for a flag meeting.
Kashmir is claimed by both India and Pakistan. The two countries have fought two wars over control of the Himalayan region since they won independence from Britain in 1947.
