At least nine civilians and one soldier were killed as firing broke out at the India-Pakistan border in Kashmir, on Sunday.

Footage shows grieving relatives of three civilians killed on the Pakistan side in Nausadda as they sought refuge during the exchange of fire. Many residents were also seen moving out of the area to avoid becoming targets of escalating tensions.

India and Pakistan accused each other of the cross-border shelling on the Line of Control (LoC), with Delhi holding Islamabad responsible for the killing of two Indian soldiers and one civilian on Saturday. Islamabad blamed Delhi for the deaths of one Pakistani soldier and three civilians, following a violation of the ceasefire.

The two neighbouring countries are engaged in frequent exchange of fire at the Kashmir border, since India revoked the special status of the disputed region on August 5.
