Political activists killed in Kashmir
Police in Indian-administered Kashmir say suspected militants have killed three members of the state's governing National Conference party in two separate attacks.

They said a local leader in Budgam district was shot dead after gunman forced their way into his house.

In another incident, two party activists in a neighbouring village were killed in a similar attack.

Islamic militants in Indian-administered Kashmir have frequently targeted members of the National Conference over the last decade.

More than 10 party workers have been killed in the last six weeks.
