Violence strains Kashmir hospitals

Medical services struggle to care for protesters wounded in clashes with Indian police.


    Violence continues in India-administered Kashmir, with police shooting at a group of protesters in a funeral procession in the latest clash, killing three people.

    Police said some demonstrators were trying to set fire to the house of a pro-Indian politician, a claim protesters deny. The deaths on Saturday bring the number of people killed in recent anti-government clashes to more than 100.

    And, as Al Jazeera's Divya Gopalan reports from Srinagar, medical services are struggling to cope with and care for the injured.
