Protesters have clashed with government troops in several parts of Indian-controlled Kashmir for the second straight day, defying a curfew imposed to restrain public anger over the killing of four villagers in the disputed region.

Police said that the protesters Saturday threw rocks, and that police and paramilitary forces used batons and tear gas and fired warning shots of live ammunition to control the crowds. Five protesters and 2 police officers were injured in the clashes.

At least 50 people were injured in similar clashes Friday.

The unrest follows the fatal shootings by government troops Thursday of four villagers who were protesting the alleged desecration of the Muslim holy book by border guards in a remote village in the region.
