Curfew in Kashmir as killings heighten tensions

Indian-administered Kashmir's main city was under curfew Thursday after the killing of five paramilitary police and the death of two civilians cranked up tensions in the disputed region. Kashmir's inspector general of police Abdul Gani Mir said a round-the-clock curfew order had been imposed in the city of Srinagar while there were similar restrictions in other towns and villages in the Kashmir Valley. "It is an indefinite curfew," Mir told AFP in Srinagar where major roads were blocked with steel barricades and coils of razor wire.
