Fresh protests in Kashmir defy curfew

Protesters have defied a curfew in Indian-administered Kashmir, pelting the security forces with stones.

Police fired tear gas at the group in Khanpora Baramulla district, north Kashmir, and one man was injured. The curfew has been extended to new areas.

The protests - the latest in a series of violent demonstrations - are over reports of Koran burnings in the US.

More than 80 protesters have died this summer in widespread anti-government demonstrations.

Nearly all of them were shot dead by government forces after protesting against Indian rule in Kashmir.
