Protesters March in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir

Hundreds of protesters marched in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir and held a rally to mark what they call "Black Day," in observance of the day India occupied Kashmir 67 years ago.

Protesters chanted "Our fight will continue until Kashmir is free" and held signs that read "Jihad will continue for Kashmiri brothers."

Anti-India sentiment runs deep in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir, where various separatist groups are fighting for independence or a merger with Pakistan.

Both India and Pakistan claim Kashmir in its entirety, with each administering a part of it.

India accuses Pakistan of arming and training rebels who have been fighting in Indian-controlled Kashmir since 1989.
