The family of Abdul Rashid, a senior leader of the pro-Pakistan Hizbul
Mujahedin mourns his death after he was killed by
India's Border Security force (BSF) in a clash that erupted after security
forces raided a rebel hideout in Kashmir's central Budgam district, 30
kilometers from the summer capital of Srinagar in Indian held Kashmir, March
1, 2004. Despite a landmark ceasefire in November along the frontier dividing
Kashmir between India and Pakistan, bloodshed has continued in the region.
More than 40,000 people have died in Kashmir since the revolt broke out in
1989. Separatists put the toll at between 80,000 and 100,000.
