Demonstrators shout slogans outside a hospital emergency unit during a protest against the Indian government's scrapping of Kashmir's special status, in Srinagar, Aug. 9, 2019.

India eased restrictions Friday in Kashmir to allow the Muslim-majority population to attend Friday prayers, but protests still broke out in the disputed region.

 Kashmir has been in an unprecedented five-day lockdown, depriving the region of any communications access, since India's government announced it was revoking Kashmir's special constitutional status.   Officials in Kashmir said residents in Srinagar were allowed to pray Friday at area-specific mosques.

A man lies in a hospital bed after being shot with pellets during clashes between Indian police and those protesting the Indian government's scrapping of Kashmir's special status, in Srinagar, Aug. 9, 2019. Witnesses in the city's Soura area said a large group of people tried to start a protest but were pushed back by security forces who used tear gas and pellets. 

 A police officer, who requested anonymity since he was not authorized to speak to reporters, told the Reuters news agency that 12 people were taken to a hospital with pellet injuries. He put the number of people trying to protest at 10,000.
