The spokesman of Kunar governor, Abdul Ghani Mosamem told Reporterly, “Clashes erupted between Afghan border forces and Pakistani military in Nara district at around 16:00PM on Sunday.”

He noted that the clashes started after Pakistani forces attempted to take illegal measures.

“At least three women were killed and four others including a child were wounded in the clashes,” he added.
