      Nine killed in Kashmir violence

      SRINAGAR, April 30: Nine people, including five militants, were
      killed and eight schoolchildren seriously injured in incidents across
      occupied Kashmir, police said on Wednesday.

      Four people were wounded when a hand grenade exploded shortly after
      the chief of the long-ruling National Conference party, Omar
      Abdullah, addressed a rally at Hardi village of Poonch district,
      police said. Mr Abdullah had left before the attack.

      One of the suspects fatally shot a civilian bystander who tried
      unsuccessfully to overpower him, a police spokesman said. A group of
      militants attacked the residence of the held state's finance minister
      on Tuesday night, a police spokesman said.

      They hurled hand grenades and opened fire with automatic rifles on
      the ancestral home of finance minister Muzaffar Beigh in Chandusa
      village. Unidentified men killed a village head and injured three in
      a grenade attack on a crowded marketplace.

      Earlier in the day, a boy was killed and four others injured when
      their school bus was caught in a cross-fire between militants and
      Indian troops near Bandipora.

      The injured include two schoolchildren, the driver and conductor of
      the bus. Indian troops claimed killing five militants in encounters
      on Wednesday and Tuesday night.

      Two Muslims, one of whom was believed to be a police informer, were
      also shot dead by suspected militants.-AFP
