Two martyred in IoK


Two protesters were martyred on Friday in Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK) when security forces opened fire on a anti-India demonstration, witnesses said.

The fatalities added to a string of deaths that have fuelled a rolling series of angry protests across the IoK Valley in the past two months.

Witnesses said the two men were shot when security forces opened fire on a demonstration in Sopore town, about 50 kilometres (30 miles) north of the Kashmiri summer capital Srinagar. Both died on the way to hospital.
