Violence erupted Thursday across the picturesque summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir state, with at least 34 people wounded in bombings and clashes between police and pro-Pakistan Moslem youths, officials said.

The unrest came during a citywide strike marking the anniversary of the day in 1947 that Indian troops were airlifted to the state to repulse raiders from neighboring Pakistan.The strike was called by the People's League and the Islamic Students League, political parties that believe Jammu and Kashmir, India's only Moslem-dominated state, should secede and become part of Pakistan, 96 percent of whose 100 million population is Moslem.
