SRINAGAR (AFP) - A strike marking one year since a Kashmiri leader was shot dead during a demonstration closed down parts of Occupied Kashmir Tuesday. The strike, called by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, closed down shops, schools and offices in Srinagar and other towns in the Muslim-majority Kashmir valley.The valley was the scene of mass pro-independence demonstrations last year, which met with a hardline response from the Indian authorities. More than 60 Muslim protesters were killed, most of them in shootings by police. Sheikh Abdul Aziz, a former freedom fighter turned moderate political leader, was killed while taking part in a protest close to the Line of Control. Four of Azizs supporters were also killed when security forces opened fire. Aziz, who was 52, was a prominent member of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, an alliance of moderate Kashmiris opposed to Indian rule in Kashmir.
