    Clashes between demonstrators and security forces over Farooq's death have also spread to other towns in the region, including Shopian, Pulwama and Baramulla.

    Police said 15 security officers and 15 protesters were injured in Wednesday's clashes.

    Indian-administered Kashmir, which is predominantly Muslim, is claimed by both India and Pakistan in its entirety.

    Anti-India sentiments run deep in the Himalayan region, where more than a dozen groups have been fighting for Kashmir's independence or its merger with neighbouring Pakistan.
