Kashmir: Clashes as protesters mark militant's death

July 8, 2017 4:43 pm

Clashes have broken out in Indian-administered Kashmir on the anniversary of the killing of a militant leader.

The security forces are reported to have used tear gas against stone-throwing protesters.

They also surrounded the hometown of Burhan Wani, 22, who was killed fighting Indian troops last year.

Separately seven people are reported to have been killed in shelling across the Line of Control that divides Indian and Pakistani-administered Kashmir.

Officials on the Pakistani side told Reuters that five people died in Indian shelling, while Indian officials say two people were killed by Pakistani fire.
