Kashmir is a region in Asia. Three different countries control it. India, Pakistan and China each control a part. There were two wars in Kashmir. The wars were between India and Pakistan.

Now there is trouble in the Indian Kashmir. Indian police and rebels fight. There is a gun battle. Six people die. Many more are injured.

The battle starts protests. People throw rocks at the police. The police fight back.
