Pakistan’s foreign ministry says Indian troops have opened fire in Kashmir, killing a 65-year-old woman.

Islamabad says Thursday’s shooting was the latest cease-fire violation by India in the village of Kot Kotera. A ministry statement says Pakistan on Friday summoned an Indian diplomat to lodge a protest over the killing.

There was no immediate comment from New Delhi. Pakistan claims India has violated the Kashmir cease-fire 70 times so far this month.
