ASADABAD (PAN): One child was killed and another wounded when a volley of artillery shells fired from across the border struck civilian houses in the Dangam district of eastern Kunar province, an official said on Wednesday.

The governor’s spokesman said at least 78 artillery shells had been fired into the district from Pakistan during the past 24 hours. Wasifullah Wasifi said one child was killed and another wounded when the shells hit four houses on the border.

He said 36 household animals had perished in the latest attack that forced 35 families into migration.

Despite assurances by the government and the UN to find a solution to the problem, cross-border shelling continues, with residents living in constant fear.
