Kashmir: Twelve dead, Christian school torched
Indian police shot dead 12 people in Kashmir yesterday as stone-throwing protesters defied curfews and torched a Christian school in a surge of anger stoked by the desecration of the Koran in Washington.
The death toll was the highest for a single day since a wave of anti-India demonstrations began three months ago, with 83 civilians now killed in unrest in the disputed Muslim-majority region. One policeman was also killed yesterday.
In New Delhi the cabinet met to discuss partially lifting a 20-year-old emergency law in an attempt to defuse tensions and break the escalating cycle of unrest.
