Description

Stringent security measures are in place in Indian administered Kashmir as the mainly Muslim population prepares to celebrate the festival of Eid al Adha.

The region's main city, Srinagar, remains under lockdown with no functioning telecommunications or internet after more than a week. A BBC correspondent says large mosques are expected to remain closed though people will be allowed to use local mosques to pray.

Several thousand Indian soldiers are on alert in the province and are patrolling the streets. The security clampdown follows protests over Delhi's decision to revoke the region's special status. Hundreds of people have been detained by the authorities, including many local political leaders.
