Islamic Fighters Swap Guns for Syringes

Police officials in Jammu, the winter capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, said “innocent civilians” were the primary targets of the poisonous injectables now being used by guerrillas in the southern zone of the state. “From pumping bullets to slitting throats, the rebels have (now) started injecting poison into their targets, resulting in instant death,” a spokesman for the regional police department told AFP. Since the weekend, two people – 45-year-old Rani Begum and 50-year-old Feroze Din – died in southern Surankot district after being administered poisonous injections, he said.
