Four Pakistani Soldiers Killed By Indian Shelling In Kashmir Across The Line Of Control (LoC)

Reuters: Four Pakistani soldiers killed in Indian shelling in Kashmir

MUZAFFARABAD, Pakistan (Reuters) - Four Pakistani soldiers were killed on Sunday when their army vehicle was struck by Indian shelling from across the Line of Control (LoC) that separates parts of Kashmir held by both countries, the Pakistani military said.

India's ministry of defense Lieutenant Colonel Rajesh Kalia said he had no knowledge of the incident.

India and Pakistan have been in confrontation for decades across the LoC. The old ceasefire line runs through a region that both countries claim in full but rule in part.

Growing exchanges of fire in past months have frayed a 2003 truce.

"Indian troops targeted an army vehicle moving along LoC ... The vehicle fell into the river and four soldiers have drowned," Pakistan's military said in a statement.

One body has been recovered from the Neelum River and a search is underway for the remaining three, the military said.
