SRINAGAR, India – Thousands of angry protesters rushed into the streets in Indian-controlled Kashmir on Friday after government forces killed two people and injured at least eight others for defying a curfew in the disputed region, police said.

In the northern town of Pattan, troops fired at a group of people who defied the curfew, killing a 65-year-old man and wounding two others, a police officer said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to reporters.
