Pak issues stiff warning
Pakistan issued a stiff warning to India today following air strikes against infiltrators in the Kargil sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
''We will take the necessary steps to defend ourselves,'' Foreign Minister Sartaj Aziz said following the air strikes.
''We are retaliating and we will retaliate,'' he warned. However he didn't elaborate.
Pakistani authorities have ordered residents of border villages to dig trenches.
In Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pak-occupied Kashmir, there were reports in recent days of thousands of people fleeing the border area because of shelling along the border.
Pakistan says several civilians have been killed in artillery attacks.
''We are assessing the situation,'' Aziz said. ''And we will reply later in the day.''
