Bombay police opened fire Friday on a crowd of Moslems protesting Salman Rushdie's book "The Satanic Verses," and at least 10 people were killed and 25 injured, authorities said. Police said about 5,000 Moslems started the protest in the center of the city after weekly prayers. Protesters set fire to several state-run buses and other vehicles and attacked policemen on duty, said an officer. Friday is Islam's weekly holy day, and anti-Rushdie protests were reported elsewhere in India. There were no other reports of violence. India banned Rushdie's book in November, fearing it could cause unrest. More than 90 million Moslems live in India, forming about 11 percent of the population.
