SRINAGAR, India — A surge of violence in the Indian-controlled part of Kashmir left 10 people dead Saturday.
In the first attack, a bomb exploded on a busy street in the Khanyar area of Srinagar, the summer capital of India's Jammu and Kashmir state.
Police said that the bomb targeted a police van carrying detainees to a court but that it exploded prematurely.
Three policemen and six civilians, including two children, were hurt.
In another part of Srinagar, unidentified gunmen fired at a crowd outside the city's main mosque, killing a police informer and a bystander.
Suspected militants killed another police informer in the town of Lolab, 50 miles northwest of Srinagar, authorities said.
Indian troops killed seven suspected militants in fighting in the town of Sopur near the Pakistani border.
