Overnight clashes between Indian and Bangladeshi border guards killed two civilians in a frontier village, Indian officials said on Thursday.

Members of India's Border Security Force and the Bangladesh Rifles fired mortars and shelled each other for nearly three hours near Kinor Khal, a border village in the northeastern Indian state of Assam, said DN Dutt, the state's police chief.

One of the mortars hit a resident's home in Kinor Khal, killing two women there, Dutt said.

It wasn't immediately known if there were any casualties on the Bangladesh side.
