Indians Protest Slaying

BOMBAY () -- Supporters of two hardline Hindu parties stoned buses and trains in Bombay on Friday to enforce a general strike called to protest the killing of a local political leader.


The opposition rightist Hindu Shiv Sena and the Bharatiya Janata Party called the strike to protest against the killing Thursday of Ramdas Nayak, the BJP's Bombay chief.


Nayak, 49, was shot dead in a western suburb by two men on a motorbike who riddled his car with bullets from an AK-56 rifle.
