Police stop religious gatherings in Kashmir

- Baton-wielding police in Indian-controlled Kashmir have broken up Muslim religious processions being held in defiance of a strict curfew in the disputed Himalayan region.

At least 30 people were detained Sunday after police imposed the curfew in the territory's main city, Srinagar, to prevent gatherings marking the Muslim holy month of Muharram from developing into anti-India protests.

Srinagar police chief Ashiq Bukhari says a group resisted police efforts to disperse their gatherings and scuffles broke out, but no one was reported injured.

Large public gatherings have been banned in Indian-administered Kashmir since the outbreak of an armed insurgency in 1989 demanding the Himalayan region's independence from India or its merger with neighboring Pakistan.
