Afghans accuse Pakistan over fresh border shelling

Pakistani security forces have fired hundreds of rockets into Afghanistan in recent days, killing a child and forcing hundreds to flee their homes, Afghan officials said yesterday.
Fazilullah Wahidy, governor of the northeastern province of Kunar where the shelling happened, told AFP: "The shells were fired directly from Pakistani military posts and garrisons on that side of the border."
Interior ministry spokesman Siddiq Siddiqui did not specify who was behind the cross-border shelling but added: "We call on Pakistan, whoever is behind the attacks, to prevent it immediately."
