. and why i still may be gone but hundreds of thousands of years are still suffering and more than iraq. at least three people have died and cross border shelling between india and pakistan and the disputed kashmir region indian officials say a mother and her two children were killed by pakistani artillery fire has a house in indian administered kashmir near the line of control several others have been taken to hospital with injuries tensions remain high after new delhi said they shot down each other's jets on wednesday. it was around nine o'clock at night when the heavy shelling started we were sleeping inside our room my kids got scared so i picked them up and ran to the other room i opened the door and as i was about to enter the room the shell landed destroying the house and killed the girl the boy and their mother. well the indian pilot captured by pakistan during those
strikes has had a medical check up after being released wing commander. was welcomed at the border on friday two days off to his plane was shot down and pakistan administered kashmir has to mail reports from new delhi. at the walk a border crossing in punjab wing commander of the number environment is released from pakistani custody back to india two days after his aircraft was shot down. as i was going to go to work was the last i was going to. hear all day and then i want you to know obviously if you're not going to get. this check up there's one good particularly because the officer has hacked. from an arab in ridgewood have orders and died aboard. is happy to have gotten back a former colonel in the indian army says at best the decision to hand him over so
quickly has been begrudgingly welcomed by india but that doesn't do enough to overcome the lingering mistrust yards of mistrust that have been generated by this pakistan for men to terrorism and support to the insurgency in kashmir these are the real key issues kashmir terrorism. the celebrations at the border are unlikely to last long as the roots of the kashmir dispute remain deep seated as attempts are made to deescalate tensions between india and pakistan continue to complain they're the ones caught in the middle and those from indeed in mr kashmir accuse the indian government of not doing enough for them not just now but over many years just before the pilots release there was a funeral in indian administered kashmir it was for woman killed by shelling between india and pakistan that began on wednesday across the line of control that divides kashmir people here complain they always suffer when pakistan. in an india
fight and there's renewed concerns about the indian government's policies in the administered kashmir a new crop of young educated people they have taken to the stones but this is something which is unprecedented that this former kashmiri civil servant made news for resigning from his post to protest against the government new delhi's policies policies he says are far more militaristic leaving no room for peaceful negotiation but we have seen the old institutions of dialogue negotiation those being kind of becoming very relevant and no important and no significant political initiative from delhi has been there for the last few years. the indian government has long complained that pakistan supports groups who promote violence in kashmir whoever is to blame for the under arrest in the disputed region all these indians want to do for now celebrate the release of their pilot as jamil al jazeera you delhi. raman is live from new delhi so tell us more about the shelling that took place on
the border. yes it's been ongoing really for several weeks now it's not just a recent occurrence if we talk about the initial. dogfighter of military aircraft over kashmir that we've has been our top story on al jazeera and the capture of the indian pilots have taken precedent over the ongoing shelling that continues on a day by day basis as you saw investors reporter there was that one woman in two died due to shelling on the thursday and then later on friday afternoon the shelling began again in the region according to indian officials you saw one man talking about how his wife and two children had been killed when a shell hit their house and that's also in just well now fifty kilometers north of that is a small village called and it's much closer to the line of control and we're also
hearing reports that overnight civilians were evacuated from the area and taken to safer locations because they too were coming under heavy bombardment this is ongoing and that tension remains the same so inevitably while the focus may have been on a pilot that was captured by the pakistanis and returned back to india for civilians at large in indian administered kashmir that the pain of the trauma of what they're experiencing continues on a day by day basis so what happens now that this pilot's been released to say tensions are still high on the border but are diplomatic tensions dissipating. yes it's certainly an interesting story this continues to develop in different ways we know that i've been under no the wing commander who was returned to india on friday even very late on friday evening here in terms of indian time is now an air
force hostel undergoing medical treatment and deep briefing we don't expect any formal press conference with him in the forseeable future for the moment but what we do have is obviously the people and the press absolutely focused on his story and this is what the national press is saying in india on saturday the indian express. in his civilian clothing at the white border as he returns back to india that of course the times of india fifty years. fifty to fifty years back is that boycotted the organization of islamic conference that was being held in abu dhabi there the indian foreign minister had spoken to over fifty. muslim majority countries and a captive audience for her to explain india's position of the experience of the indian government and indian people in terms of terror she most vocally attacked
pakistan as being a sponsor state sponsor of terror and of course now the pakistani foreign minister according to the newspaper is also claiming that the the man behind or the man who inspired the attack on military personnel and pull wire in february is based in pakistan. you talk about the pressure to study and this is what it's all about you know the pilot may be back but new delhi's continue to put pressure on pakistan and that's where the focus lies for new delhi they want to get the pilot back first and then we assume we will find out what india's next move will be they play their presentations to a largely a large gathering of islamic nations as i said at the oh i see in abu dhabi that's been a huge. positive point for the indian government they will then continue with their position certainly with the americans and the e.u. and it really is a battle of the p.r. game you know who can actually get their message across and be listened to by
influential powers so at the moment it's a wait and see as to what new delhi will do next out of syria so how raman live for us in new delhi thank you. well hundreds of thousands of people have rallied across algeria demanding that their eighty one year old president pulls out of next month's elections. has been in power for twenty years he's planning to run for a fifth but protesters say he's unfit for the job reports. they are the biggest demonstrations in algeria in decades this is the country's capital. there are similar scenes in several other cities that demanded the country's ailing president up to lizzie's beautifully co withdrawals from the country's forthcoming presidential election. the student led protests have been growing in recent days ever since the eighty one year old leader issued a statement announcing his intention to run for a fifth term algerian journalists have also joined the growing demonstrations

a real reflection from the north korean leader did he overplay his hand but also going for so many sanctions to be lifted something that the americans thought was a step too far under step early this likely diplomatic process has been going now for a year since the winter olympics in that time there's always been a next step right now because of the collapse of these talks there really isn't a next step but i think it now falls to the south koreans and president moon he's talked about another summit with him and they've talked about having that summit in seoul to build on their own. relationship between the two countries that summit that takes place i think is now going to have to try to rescue the process the parents of an american student who died after being detained in north korea blaming leader kim jong un for his death they've spoken off to try and lavished praise on ten during the summit on how warm beer died shortly after returning to the u.s.
