SRINAGAR, India (AP) – Police say suspected rebels have exploded grenades at two police stations in Indian-administered Kashmir, injuring at least 14 people.
Officer Imtiyaz Hussain says a militant set off a grenade outside a police patrol post in Sopore town, northeast of Srinagar, the region’s largest city, wounding four officers and at least 10 civilians.
Police say no one was injured by a second grenade that exploded at a police station in Srinagar.
Indian forces have largely suppressed an insurgency that erupted in 1989. About 68,000 people were killed in the uprising and subsequent crackdowns. There are still frequent street protests as resentment against Indian rule remains strong.
