Kashmir families mourn civilians killed by India's army

Ganawpora is in mourning. The small village in the southern part of Kashmir's Shopian district has lost five young men, including a rebel, in less than a week.

One of them, 19-year-old Javaid Ahmad Bhat, was a big cricket fan. On the morning of January 27, he was playing cricket before returning home for lunch. He left his home in the afternoon for the market but never come back. Instead, the villagers carried his body back home. Bhat and two other young students - Suhail Ahmad Lone and Rayees Ahmad Ganai - were killed when the army fired upon them at Ganawpora village.
