ISLAMABAD - Indian forces fired across the de facto border in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir early on Wednesday, killing three Pakistani soldiers, the Pakistani army said on Thursday.

It said Indian forces opened "unprovoked" fire across the so-called Line of Control (LoC) -- which divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan -- in Neelam valley.

"The soldiers were moving from one post to another when they came under fire. Three soldiers were killed," military spokesman Major Gen. Athar Abbas said.

Pakistani forces returned fire in retaliation and the incident was raised with local Indian commanders, he said.
