100 killed this summer

From BBC: Killings cross 100 in Kashmir

“Police and protesters have clashed violently in Indian-administered Kashmir as residents continued to defy a valley-wide curfew.

In Anantnag, government forces opened fire on a funeral gathering, killing one civilian and wounding several.

In Palhalan, AFP reported that police fired on demonstrators trying to block a highway, killing two men.

Anti-India sentiment is high in Indian-controlled Kashmir, where more than 100 protesters have died since June.

Nearly all of those killed have been shot dead by government forces. The valley has been under an almost round-the-clock curfew for more than a week.”
