3 die dur­ing shoot­ings amid Kash­mir protests

Austin American-Statesman - - WEDNESDAYBRIEFING -

SRI­NA­GAR—Govern­ment forces fired on hun­dreds of rock-throw­ing pro­test­ers in In­dian Kash­mir, killing two young men, as au­thor­i­ties reim­posed a cur­few in Sri­na­gar, the re­gion’s main city, res­i­dents and of­fi­cials said. A woman was also killed when a stray bul­let hit her in­side her home. Protests against mostly Hindu In­dia’s rule in the pre­dom­i­nantly Mus­lim re­gion have grown in­creas­ingly stri­dent in re­cent weeks with Kash­miris ac­cus­ing govern­ment forces of killing at least 15 peo­ple.
