World Bulletin / News Desk

Pakistan has lodged a “strong” protest with the United Nations over “unprovoked” cross-border shelling by India, the Pakistan military said.

Four Pakistani civilians were killed and 26 injured by artillery fire on Monday and Tuesday, Inter Services Public Relations, the Pakistan military’s media arm, said in a statement Tuesday.

Six non-fatal casualties occurred on Tuesday during shelling along the Pakistan-Indian border and the line of control that separates the Pakistani and Indian controlled areas of Kashmir.

Pakistan protested to the UN military observer mission in Kashmir, put in place after the 1948 war between Pakistan and India.
