Aijaz Hussain in Srinagar

From The Washington Post: “Protestors clash in …

“Hundreds of anti-India protesters clashed with police and paramilitary soldiers after Friday prayers despite a rigid curfew being reimposed in most of Kashmir following weeks of unrest that has killed 15 people.”

“On Friday, thousands of police and paramilitary soldiers – dressed in riot gear and armed with assault rifles – patrolled Srinagar, the main city in the Indian-held Kashmir. They asked people to stay at home, said Javaid Ahmed, a local resident.”

“…on Thursday, the unrest picked up again, when thousands of people held streets protests chanting “We want freedom” and “Go India, go back” in Srinagar.”
