SRINAGAR (AFP) A protester was killed and 12 people hurt on Friday when police opened fire and used batons to disperse hundreds of demonstrators throwing stones in Occupied Kashmir, police said. The protesters were demonstrating against the setting up of a police camp at Parihaspora village, 30km north of Kashmirs summer capital Srinagar. The protesters say the camp obstructs the way to a Muslim shrine. The clashes erupted when hundreds of people held a demonstration outside the camp, witness Abdul Aziz told AFP by telephone. A police officer who declined to be named claimed police opened fire in self-defence after villagers attacked them with stones and bricks. Three of the injured had bullet wounds. The situation in the village is tense but under control, the police officer said as witnesses reported more protests following the villagers death.
