India has responded angrily to a speech by Pakistan's prime minister to the UN general assembly, with an envoy calling the country "Terroristan".

In his speech, PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi accused India of "war crimes" in the disputed Kashmir region and of "exporting terror" to Pakistan.

Relations between the nuclear-armed neighbours have worsened in recent times, mainly over Kashmir.

The two nations have fought three wars since gaining independence from Britain in 1947, two of them over the disputed territory.
