Three more civilians were killed in Kashmir as Indian and Pakistani forces kept up heavy cross-border firing in the disputed region overnight, officials said Wednesday, taking the toll to 12, with dozens more injured.Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan but both lay claim to the scenic Himalayan region, and clashes occur regularly along their disputed border known as the Line of Control (LoC).Indian security sources said the shelling appeared to be more intense than on previous occasions, and had occurred along the internationally recognised border between India and Pakistan as well as the LoC.Pakistan's military blamed unprovoked firing from India, which has an estimated 500,000 troops deployed in its part of Kashmir.
