Two policemen killed in Kashmir by militants

World News – Insurgents shot and killed two policemen at a market place in Indian-administered Kashmir, police said.

A police statement said the assailants fled after Saturday’s attack near a bus stop in Handwara, a town 90 kilometres north of Srinagar.

Nearly a dozen militant groups have been fighting for Kashmir’s independence from India or its merger with neighboring Pakistan since 1989.

More than 68,000 people have been killed in the region.

Kashmir has been hit by violent anti-India protests since Mohammed Afzal Guru was hanged in a New Delhi jail on February 9. He was convicted of involvement in a 2001 attack on India’s Parliament. Many people believe Guru did not receive a fair trial. Agencies
