Deaths in Kashmir curfew protests
At least four people have been killed in Indian-administered Kashmir, bringing the death toll from recent weeks of violence to 27.
Government troops fired into crowds of protesters on Monday as thousands of Kashmiris demonstrated against a round-the-clock curfew imposed across the region.
The deaths, reported in the Pulwama, Anantnag, Pulgam and Kupwara districts, bring to 19 the total number of civilians killedsince Friday.
Omar Abdullah, the chief minister of the Jammu and Kashmir state, earlier said that enforcing a curfew was necessary to stem the violence.
