ASADABAD (PAN): Six civilians have been killed in a new cross-border attack by Pakistani forces on a village in eastern Kunar province, the governor said on Monday.

A number of rocket and mortar shells fired from Pakistan struck civilian homes in the Saw village of Nari district on Sunday night, Syed Fazlullah Wahidi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
