ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan says Indian troops opened fire in violation of a 2003 cease-fire agreement in the disputed Kashmir region, killing two civilians and wounding another six on the Pakistani side.

The nuclear-armed rivals have repeatedly accused each other in recent weeks of unprovoked fire across the Line of Control that divides the Himalayan region into Indian and Pakistani zones.

Both countries claim Kashmir in its entirety, and have gone to war over it twice.

Earlier this week the Pakistani military said four soldiers drowned after their vehicle was struck by Indian fire, causing it to plunge into a river in Kashmir.
