Thousands of mourners defy a curfew in the Indian-controlled Kashmir, to bury a teenage boy who was killed by Indian troops.

The mourners held a funeral for 18-year-old Farhat Ahmed Dar who died on Friday. They chanted slogans against India. Thousands of armed police and paramilitary soldiers patrolled the area but did not stop the procession. The teenager was killed and two others wounded when government forces fired at anti-India protesters after Friday prayers. Rallies against Indian rule are common in the Muslim-majority region. India's crackdown on protests over the past two decades has left thousands of Kashmiris dead.
