India, Pakistan Kashmir fighting forces hundreds of villagers to flee

Villagers living in the disuted Kashmir region have run away from the area due to the ongoing fire exchanges between India and Paskitan, ,Reuters has reported.

Police said hundreds of people had to flee the area though no clear report of the cause of the revival of fire exchange on Saturday.

Reports said the fighting between the two nuclear armed rivals happened in the Uri sector on the so-called Line of Control (LoC) that divides the mostly Muslim Himalayan region.

Indian Police superintendent Imtiaz Hussain said artillery shells fired by the Pakistan army fell in the Uri area and hundreds of villagers had fled from their homes.

Indian forces returned artillery fire, an Indian officer said, the first time the heavy guns had been used since a 2003 ceasefire along the disputed frontier.

It is said early this month, six Indian military personnel were attacked and killed at their camp in Kashmir.

The move forced the Indian government to threaten revenge on Pakistan accusing it of being a cause.
