India has agreed to allow Pakistani relief helicopters to fly to earthquake-devastated villages along the cease-fire line that divides Kashmir between the two nations, the Indian foreign ministry said. Pakistan would provide advance information of any helicopter flights to the dozens of devastated villages close to the cease-fire line to prevent misunderstanding, said an Indian official, who didn't want to be named because he was not authorized to speak to the media. The Oct. 8 quake killed at least 38,000 people in Pakistan, most of them in the Kashmir region. More than 1,350 people died in India's portion of Kashmir.
