India’s ‘most wanted’ killed in Kashmir

India’s army has confirmed that the country’s “most wanted” militant has been killed in Kashmir.

Authorities said Zakir Musa was shot dead after they trapped him inside a house in south Kashmir's Tral district.

Musa split from the Hizbul Mujahideen, one of the largest groups fighting Indian rule in Kashmir, and declared his allegiance to al-Qaeda in 2017.

Thousands of mourners attended his funeral and the killing has already brought protests in the Muslim-majority state.
