BBC reports on “Kashmir’s Cameraphone Chroniclers:”

Minutes after 35-year-old Javed Amir Mir was shot in the head by security forces in Srinagar, capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, a young boy recorded his death on his mobile phone camera.

The shaky and grainy clip shows a blood splattered face lying on the road. You can hear the wailing women and the screaming men in the background

Across the city, 25-year-old Imran Ahmed Wani’s death was also recorded on mobile phones by friends rushing him to hospital after he was shot during a demonstration.
