Death Toll Rises To 32 In Worst Kashmir Violence
A total of 31 civilians and a policeman have been killed since the weekend in the clashes in Kashmir valley, in the worst civilian unrest to hit the region since 2010, when 110 people were killed in anti-India protests after Indian police killed a teenager.
Doctors and government officials said they were struggling to care for hundreds of civilians who have been admitted to hospitals with bullet and pellet wounds.More than 400 people including 100 security officials have been injured, and the death toll could rise further, officials said.
Thousands thronged Tral town, despite restrictions, to participate in the memorial service for rebel leader Burhan Wani, whose killing on July 8 by Indian police triggered the outbreak of protests.
