    As the world observes the UN-sponsored Human Rights Day, rights violations continue to be a major issue in Indian-administered Kashmir.

    Since 1989, nearly 70,000 people have been killed in violence that separatist leaders say the UN has done too little to prevent.

    For the past year, the remote, northern region was gripped by widespread protests, following the killing of a prominent rebel commander.

    In the crackdown that followed, more than 100 protesters were killed, thousands were arrested and hundreds were blinded by police who shot at civilians with iron pellets.
