Student protester being arrested STORYLINE: Anti-India protests on Monday triggered clashes between students and government forces in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir. The clashes came after authorities reopened schools following a week long suspension of classes. Government forces used tear gas and water cannons to stop students from marching on Monday in the main commercial area in Srinagar, the key city in Indian-controlled Kashmir. The students retaliated by hurling rocks and breaching the barricades set up by police and paramilitary soldiers. Some students were reportedly injured in the clashes. Tensions between Kashmiri students and Indian law enforcement have escalated since April 15, when government forces raided a college in Pulwama, about 30 kilometers (19 miles) south of Srinagar, to scare anti-India activists. India and Pakistan each administer parts of Kashmir, but both claim the region in its entirety. Most people in the Indian-controlled portion favour independence or a merger with Pakistan. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
