Politician killed in Kashmir
Police in Indian-administered Kashmir say suspected militants have killed a prominent pro-India political activist, Ghulam Mohiuddin Lone.

They say he was shot dead outside his home in the district of Kupwara.

Mr Lone was a brother of a former law minister in the state government, Mushtaq Ahmed Lone, who was also assassinated at an election rally in September this year.

Ghulam Mohiuddin Lone gained prominence in 1996 when he, along with some other militant leaders, initiated a dialogue with the Indian Government on the Kashmir issue.

No group has so far admitted killing him.
