Kashmiri militants target Muslims
Police in Indian-administered Kashmir say more Muslim civilians have been killed by Muslim separatists, apparently for being suspected informers.

Two adults and three children were killed in an attack in Doda in southern Kashmir.

In a separate incident in Doda, a Muslim man was shot dead in the village of Doligam, while in the Anantnag district of Kashmir two brothers were killed.

A political activist from the governing National Conference party was killed in the second attack on party officials in Srinagar in less than a week.

Meanwhile, Indian soldiers have ambushed and killed a district commander of the outlawed Muslim militant group, Lashkar-e-Taiba - one of the organisations Delhi blames for the attack on the Indian parliament last December.
