Kashmir: Anger flares over alleged mutilation of Indian soldiers

India has accused Pakistani soldiers of mutilating the soldiers' bodies on May 1 after firing rockets and mortars along the Line of Control (LOC) in the Poonch district of Kashmir.

Asked whether the soldiers killed by artillery fire, an Indian Army official said the cause of death was unclear, adding that more information would come from the autopsy.

The official declined to go into detail about how or exactly when the mutilation occurred.

India imposes Eid curfew across Kashmir

Fresh violence on Tuesday left one protester dead and at least 22 others were injured as security forces blocked roads to several important mosques.

Mobile and data services have been stopped. Curfew on Eid is extremely rare in Indian-administered Kashmir.

The campaign that 'shot' Mark Zuckerberg in the face

An image of the Facebook CEO, photoshopped to appear as if he had been shot in the face by the controversial pellet guns used by security forces in Indian-administered Kashmir, has been widely shared on social media in the last few days.

It follows a raising of tensions in Indian-administered Kashmir. Both India and Pakistan claim Kashmir in its entirety. Many people in the Indian-administered territory - especially in the Muslim-majority Kashmir valley - do not want it to be governed by India.

The protesters, waving Pakistani and pro-militant flags and chanting pro-independence slogans, hurled stones at government forces, who retaliated with tear gas.

The tensions started as a court two weeks ago upheld a colonial-era law banning the slaughtering of cows, which are worshipped by Hindus, and the selling beef in the region - a decision resented by Muslims.

Police fired tear gas and used batons to disperse the protesters, who took to the streets after Friday prayers in mosques in Srinagar, Pulwama, Pattan and elsewhere in the region.

A court on Thursday ordered authorities to strictly implement the 1932 law making the slaughter of cows punishable by up to 10 years' imprisonment and a fine. Indian authorities did not enforce the law for about seven decades.
