Large anti-India clashes erupted in disputed Kashmir on Tuesday after government forces killed two senior militants in a gunbattle and fatally shot a protester during an ensuing protest demanding an end to Indian rule.Rebel groups have been fighting since 1989 for the Indian-administered portion to become independent or merge with Pakistan.Anti-India sentiment runs deep in Kashmir's mostly Muslim population and most people support the rebels' cause against Indian rule.Rebel groups have largely been suppressed by Indian forces in recent years and public opposition to Indian rule is now principally expressed through street protests.
