Kashmir: intifada resumes

Thousands of protesters again filled the streets in Indian-controlled Kashmir Aug. 13 after security forces killed four and injured at least eight others for defying a curfew. In the northern town of Pattan, troops enforcing the curfew reportedly killed a 65-year-old man. In Sopore, a large crowd gathered after Friday prayer services and threw stones at a camp occupied by Indian paramilitary troops, who opened fire, killing two. In Kupwara, police fired on a crowd of 2,000 who had gathered in defiance of the curfew, killing a 23-year-old man. In Srinagar, the regional capital, officials did not impose a curfew for fear of sparking further, and Friday prayer services were held at the city’s historic mosque for the first time in six weeks.
