Authorities lifted a curfew in violence-hit parts of the southern city of Bangalore, India's technology hub, on Monday, a day after hundreds of Hindu nationalists burned shops and set vehicles ablaze, news reports said. An overnight curfew was imposed in the Bhartinagar district of Bangalore on Sunday after police gunfire killed one person and injured three others, the Press Trust of India news agency quoted Police Commissioner N. Achuta Rao as saying. Sunday's violence appeared to be in retaliation for a procession taken out by Muslims two days earlier protesting the execution of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
