In this photo by Associated Press photographer Dar Yasin, a masked villager holds a wooden stick and a stone during a protest following the funeral procession of Akeel Ahmed Bhat, 17, in Haal village, about 47 kilometers (29 miles) south of Srinagar in Indian-controlled Kashmir.
Massive clashes and protests erupted in Kashmir on Tuesday after troops killed two rebel leaders in a gunbattle and fatally shot a civilian in an ensuing demonstration demanding an end to Indian rule. Akeel Ahmed Bhat was shot by government troops and died early Wednesday.
Thousands participated in his funeral, where clashes erupted between rock-throwing villagers and government forces who fired shotgun pellets and tear gas.
