A Kashmiri man paddles to a floating market in the early
freezing temperatures before sunrise on Dal Lake in the summer capital
of Kashmir, Srinagar India, November 24, 2001. In the background,
echoing through the nearby mountains, gunshots and fighting could
be heard. Kashmir was once a tourist hotspot but now vendors struggle
to survive in a place that has seen nearly 1000 civilians killed this
year alone and 1,765 wounded in a brutal conflict that the United
Nations calls the most dangerous place in the world.
