The U.N. human rights chief Thursday called for a major investigation into abuses in Kashmir, as his office released its first-ever report on violations committed by both India and Pakistan in the disputed territory.

Zeid Raad al-Hussein said he would urge the Human Rights Council, which opens a new session next week, "to consider establishing a Commission of Inquiry to conduct a comprehensive independent international investigation into allegations of human rights violations in Kashmir."
