Authorities impose a curfew and cut mobile internet services in restive Indian state

Authorities have imposed a curfew in the capital and some other places in India’s restive state of Manipur after dozens of students were injured in violence following protests against the alleged abduction and murder of two students. Mobile internet services have also been suspended in the state for five days. Al Jazeera quotes security experts as saying that ethnic violence has plunged the northeastern state bordering Myanmar into an intense civil war fought over land, jobs and political clout between its two largest local groups.
