Government forces are enforcing a rigid curfew for the third straight day in Indian-controlled Kashmir after India executed a Kashmiri man convicted in a deadly 2001 attack on Parliament.

Mohammed Afzal Guru was hanged in New Delhi on Saturday. Ahead of the execution, authorities ordered people in most of the Indian-held part of disputed Kashmir to remain indoors indefinitely in anticipation of anti-India protests.

Despite the curfew, hundreds of angry residents have clashed with the troops in the region.

A young boy injured in anti-India protests died in a hospital early Monday. Another protester died late Sunday.

Cable television and mobile Internet services were shut in most parts of the region on Monday.
