    Security forces in Indian-administered Kashmir say they will continue to use pellet guns against protesters.

    More than a thousand people suffered permanent eye damage and many were blinded by pellet guns during protests last year.

    Doctors say they have treated between 30 and 40 patients for pellet-gun injuries since the end of March this year.

    Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith reports from Srinagar, the capital of Indian-administered Kashmir.
