KABUL - Afghanistan's parliament voted on Saturday to dismiss both the interior and defense ministers over continued cross-border shelling which the Afghan government has blamed on neighboring Pakistan's army, as well as other issues.

The fractious parliament voted to remove the pair despite their promises to reinforce the border, although Afghan President Hamid Karzai has previously opted to keep ministers in their roles in acting capacity after similar votes.
