Indian forces killed more than a dozen people and wounded scores more rampaging rioters, who chanted “Down with Koran desecrators” as they attacked a Christian school in one town and government buildings in other cities.
They also chanted “Down with America” and “Down with Israel,” cries rarely heard in Kashmir where Muslim rebels have long waged a bloody rebellion against Indian rule.
One Muslim was killed in anti-Koran burning protests in Afghanistan on Friday.
