    Funerals have been held for four policemen killed in a bomb attack in the town of Sopore, about 50km northwest of Srinagar city, in the northern part of Indian administered Kashmir.

    Security sources say rebels opposed to Indian rule triggered an improvised explosive device targeting a police patrol.

    It's the latest in a series of bombings by rebels who want to end Indian control of the region - which is disputed with Pakistan.
