Hundreds of Shi'ite Muslims protested across Indian-held Kashmir on Thursday against the destruction of two minarets at a revered Shi'ite shrine in Iraq, in a bombing blamed on al-Qaida insurgents. Over 500 angry demonstrators marched through Srinagar, the summer capital of India's Jammu-Kashmir state, carrying black flags and copies of the Quran and burned effigies of US President George W. Bush. The protesters also blocked roads and set tires and piles of trash alight.
