SRINAGAR, India -- At least seven people were injured Friday in clashes between anti-India protesters and government forces in Indian-controlled Kashmir, police said.

Police officer Abdul Gani Mir said the clashes erupted in Kashmir's main city of Srinagar after troops prevented hundreds of people from marching to the southern town of Shopian.

Separatist groups had called for the march. Shopian has been under curfew for two weeks, following the killing of five people in two paramilitary shootings.

Clashes were also reported in the northern town of Baramulla.

Police said the injured included two photojournalists and two policemen.

Anti-India feelings run deep in Kashmir, where rebels have been fighting against Indian rule since 1989. More than 68,000 people have been killed in the conflict, though resistance in recent years has mainly been shown through street protests.
