JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A woman was killed after Pakistani security forces fired dozens of rockets into Achin district of eastern Nangarhar province on Thursday, an official said.

At least 30 rockets fired from across the Durand Lineinfo-icon landed in Abdulkhel area of Achin district at about noon, said Attaullah Khogyani, the Nangarhar governor’s spokesman.

He said a woman was killed when a rocket hit her house in the area.

The 30 rockets were fired hours after local officials said the Pakistani forces fired 90 mortar shells into Achin and Nazyan districts last night.

There were no casualties in the previous firing.
