Two unidentified relatives weep as they carry the coffin of Safdar Baig, a former state minister, in Sarnal, 60 km (37 miles) south of Srinagar, October 21, 2004. Masked separatist guerrillas gunned down Baig, a former state minister in Indian Kashmir on Thursday as he was coming out of a mosque after prayers in Sarnal village of Anantnag district, police said. It was the biggest strike by Muslim militants fighting Indian rule in the disputed region since the holy fasting month of Ramadan began in Kashmir. REUTERS/Fayaz Kabli FK/CP
