Major towns in Indian-administered Kashmir are under curfew, a day after four people were killed when troops opened fire on angry protesters.

Separatist groups called a strike across Jammu and Kashmir as a mark of protest against the violence in Jammu's Ramban district

Police initially said six people were killed, but revised these figures.

Some reports said the protest came after forces entered a mosque, with allegations they beat a cleric too.
