Funeral of School Principal Killed in Kashmir

A funeral was held Friday in Indian-administered Kashmir for one of two educators killed by assailants.

The fatal shooting Thursday was part of a sudden rise in targeted killings of minorities in the disputed region, police said.

Authorities blamed militants fighting against Indian rule for the attack in the outskirts of Srinagar, the region's main city.

Police said militants fired at a female teacher and her male colleague inside a government school from a close distance and later fled.
