Eight protesters injured, restrictions reimposed in Kashmir

SRINAGAR, India (AFP) – Eight people have been injured during weekend protests in Kashmir’s main city with authorities reimposing heavy restrictions to quell unrest in parts of the troubled region, officials said.

Tensions remain high in the disputed Himalayan territory following New Delhi’s decision to strip its semi-autonomous status on August 5.

Authorities were gradually easing a massive movement and communications lockdown imposed two weeks ago.
