MUZAFFARABAD, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistan's military says Indian shelling has targeted several villages in Kashmir, killing four civilians and wounding 10.

The army statement on Monday said Pakistan fired back. There was no immediate comment from India.

Pakistan and India have been trading fire in recent weeks in the Himalayan region, which is divided between the two nuclear-armed neighbors and claimed by both in its entirety.

Tensions have been running high since militants attacked an Indian army base in Kashmir in September. India said the militants were supported by Pakistan, charges denied by Islamabad.
