India released 24 Pakistani prisoners, including three children on Friday, and 30 fishermen, whose nationality has been confirmed.

Pakistan is due to release 20 Indian prisoners and 50 fishermen in its custody on Saturday, after the Foreign Secretaries of both countries at their meeting last month decided to release all fishermen and prisoners whose sentences are over and whose national status stands confirmed, by Christmas Day.
