Pakistan claimed that the Indian fire killed one civilian and wounded 25 on the Pakistani side of the line. In Pakistan, Islamic fundamentalists called a nationwide strike to protest American attacks in Afghanistan. The strike was largely ignored. Inside Indian Kashmir, rebel activity killed 19 (12 rebels, two soldiers and five civilians.) In Pakistan, Islamic fundamentalists killed two policemen guarding a mosque Karachi. Anti-American demonstrations continued in Kashmir.
