Funeral for murdered official


Relatives of election official Mohammad Zia-ul-Haq look through a window as they react during his funeral at Herpora, south of Srinagar yesterday. In an incident on Thursday, Zia-ul-Haq was killed and five people wounded in a gun attack in Indian-ruled Kashmir, where many people stayed away from voting in a constituency that was hit by pre-poll violence.
