Most photos of injured Kashmiri kids are too gruesome to show, especially those covered in pellet injuries. This little girl who appears to have sustained less dreadful harm was actually injured last month “in the clashes between police & protesters” in Srinagar.

When an accounting is made of the human rights crimes in this siege, it will be necessary for the Indian army to explain why they shot at unarmed protesters particularly when there were small children anywhere in the vicinity. Or were they out to get them in the first place?
