Four policemen killed in Kashmir bombing

The explosion ripped through a market in the town of Sopore on Saturday, police spokesman Harmeet Singh said.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Four police officers have been killed in a bomb blast set off by militants fighting Indian rule in a northwestern town in disputed Kashmir, according to police.

The explosion ripped through a market in the town of Sopore on Saturday, police spokesman Harmeet Singh said.

"A group of four policemen who were on law-and-order duty were killed," Singh said. "Ten shops were also damaged due to the blast, as it was very strong."

Muneeb Ahmad, who lives a kilometre away from the market, said he "felt the earth shake beneath my feet" when the powerful bomb was detonated.

The attack came as the town was observing a strike to mark the 25th anniversary of a massacre in which government forces killed 57 civilians.

The so-called Jaish-e-Mohammad, a Pakistan-based armed group, has claimed responsibility for the blast.
