The World : 13 Killed in India Unrest

July 11, 1986

Protesting Muslims hurled rocks, burned shops and killed a Hindu in a second day of communal violence that has claimed 13 lives in the Gujarat state capital of Ahmedabad, police said. Authorities moved to avert further unrest by deploying additional security forces and extending a day-old curfew to new areas of the city, 800 miles southwest of New Delhi. The violence was triggered Wednesday when Muslims began throwing rocks at a Hindu religious procession of 50,000 people winding its way through the city.
