  • Description

    The East Pakistan town of Comilla was last Tuesday (12 October) assessing damage caused to its buildings, and caring for its wounded, following a shell attack...allegedly from the Indian side of the nearby border. Five civilians were killed and 39 seriously wounded during the attack. Several public buildings and many private houses sustained serious structural damage. Many women and children have been left homeless. During the past week, and particularly following this attack, both Indian and Pakistan authorities reported a massing of local troops on both sides of the border, and there have been subsequent artillery exchanges.

    This official film from Pakistan has a certain amount of "lens out" in it, but has been serviced notwithstanding because of its news value.
