Pakistan: Indian gunfire killed soldier

A Pakistani soldier was killed as a result of "unprovoked firing" from the Indian side of the disputed region of Kashmir, the Pakistani army said in a statement Sunday.
The incident occurred in Rawlakot, near the line that divides Kashmir into Pakistani and Indian control. Pakistan has lodged a strong protest with India and demanded an immediate meeting, the statement said.

Kashmir has been at the root of two wars between India and Pakistan, both of which tested nuclear weapons in 1998.

    How about the weekly unprovoked firing from Pakistan's side? Maybe CNN should start posting the pics of the Indian soldiers killed by that!

    Here is the rest of the news picked up from other reporting agency :

    However, the Indian military said that Pakistan started the clash and that Pakistani troops also had fired rockets.

    "Indian troops retaliated and a heavy exchange of gunfire was on," IANS, an Indian newswire, cited an army spokesperson as saying.

    An Indian soldier was injured in the mortar fire by Pakistani troops, the spokesman said.

    heaven forbid that CNN or other american news sources tell the whole story, haven't you noticed the big news sources are slanted, you only get what they feel you need to know, not neccesarily the truth or whole story.

    Isn't Pakistan CNN's best friend? Democracies like India really don't care about rogue news channels like CNN. And what is this CNN News Blog is about? Some idiot in CNN can just post it?

      @ mike hawk

      Nevermind Mike, Pakistan is a terrorist country whose credibility is a big ZERO. I hope you do know that Ajmal kasab is a Pakistani national not to mention the FACT that a serving major of PAK army plotted the time square bomb fiasco.

    I have always believed that role of International Media is important espacilly in South Asian devloping nation as it could play a vital role. But unfortunatly this story tells that how incomplete and biased journalism is going on to demolish the largest democarcy of the world but let me tell u guys Bhagwan, God, Allaha wht so ever you claim it knows everything and all this will come to an end. Humanity Human values should be kept first. You should work to strengthn the relationship between these two contries not to creat problem.
