PESHAWAR: Up to three artillery shells fired from Afghanistan landed on the Pakistan side of the border on Friday.

An official said that locals from the Dadum village in North Waziristan told soldiers at the Admi Kot army post that the artillery rounds had landed in their village.

The troops at the post confirmed that they too had heard the munitions landing.

Tensions between the two neighbouring have simmered in the past week with an Afghan military delegation cancelling its maiden trip to Pakistan after what the Afghan claims were two dozen Pakistani artillery shells fired into the eastern province of the country on Monday and Tuesday.

Pakistan has denied the allegations, claiming that there was an incursion from the Afghan side.

@Raj - USA: Ironic when you say the world wants muslims to be under civilized rule yet you left your 'civilized India' behind for greener pastures.
