Pakistan denies reports of Kashmir border clash

Pakistan denied Indian news reports of a clash on the disputed Kashmir border in which five Pakistani soldiers were said to have been killed. A Foreign Office spokesman also denied reports that a massive Pakistani military buildup had been completed along the troubled 900-mile India-Pakistan border. He said there had been no unusual movement of troops and that it was normal for both sides to rotate men this time of year.
