PAN, Jun. 18, 2011: Four children in the eastern province of Kunar were killed by missiles fired from Pakistan, officials said on Saturday. One such incident three days earlier had killed four other children in the Shigal district, which also borders Pakistan, he said.

Four children in the eastern province of Kunar were killed by missiles fired from Pakistan, officials said on Saturday.

The incident took place on Friday night when missiles fired from Pakistan’s Mohmand Agency landed on residents’ houses in Shunkrai area of the Sarkani district, provincial governor Syed Fazlullah Wahidi told Pajhwok Afghan News.

For the past four days, the Dangam, Shigal and Sarkani districts of Kunar province have suffered casualties and losses from similar cross-border missile attacks, he said.

One such incident three days earlier had killed four other children in the Shigal district, which also borders Pakistan, he said.

The eastern zone commander of the Afghan border police, Brig. Gen. Aminullah Amarkhel, said police had concluded that Pakistani soldiers had fired the missiles.

He further claimed that Pakistani border guards had on Friday attacked the Goshta district in Nangarhar, a province adjacent to Kunar, injuring a police officer.

After the attack, International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) helicopters attacked a Pakistani checkpoint, destroying it, he said.

Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has summoned Afghan and US diplomats to discuss the incidents.
