Strike, tear gas in Kashmir after army kills 2

Shops and businesses were closed in Indian-controlled Kashmir and small protests broke out after separatists called a strike Wednesday following the killings of two teenagers by army soldiers at a roadblock.

Government forces fired tear gas in a suburb of the main city of Srinagar to disperse protesters who hurled stones at police and paramilitary soldiers. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
