2 Kashmiris Killed by Police

Two protesters have been killed and scores wounded in clashes with security forces in Indian-administered Kashmir, bringing the death toll after months of unrest to 82, as a security crackdown marred Eid festivities in the disputed region. One protester was killed on Tuesday after being struck on the head by a tear-gas shell in the northern district of Bandipora, a police officer told AP on condition of anonymity, Al Jazeera reported. Another protester was killed by pellet ammunition fired from shotguns in Shopian in the south of Kashmir, the officer said. At least 60 people were wounded in clashes in 10 places in the disputed region, which remains under curfew. Most people stayed indoors for the Islamic festival of Eid al-Adha, which fell on Tuesday, while in Srinagar, the capital of the Indian-administered Kashmir, the bustling marketplaces were deserted.
