At least three killed in India-Pakistan cross-border shelling

ISLAMABAD/SRINIGAR - Shelling across the border between India and Pakistan killed two Pakistani civilians and an Indian soldier, military officials from the two sides said on Monday, as tension between the nuclear-armed neighbors simmers.
Pakistan's military said the shelling hit the sectors of Harpal, Pukhlian and Charwah along the disputed "working boundary", which separates Pakistan's Punjab province from Indian-administered Kashmir's Jammu region.
India's military said the firing occurred in the Pura, Pargwal and Kanachak sectors.
Both countries have claimed the disputed Kashmir region in full since partition and independence from the British in 1947, but administer separate portions of it. They have fought two of their three wars over the territory.
