ISLAMABAD (PANinfo-icon): Pakistaninfo-icon on Wednesday lodged a strong protest with Afghanistaninfo-icon over cross-border mortar fire into the Waziristan tribal region.

A day earlier, six mortar shells fired from Afghanistan landed in the Ghulam Khan sub-district of North Waziristan, killing two civilians and injuring a third inside their house.

The Afghan Charge d’affaires was called to the Foreign Office in Islamabad and a strong protest was lodged over the unprovoked mortar fire by the Afghan border police.
