Srinagar, Jan 23: Clashes erupted on the streets of Srinagar on Friday during a daylong strike called by the separatists in protest to the publication of a caricature of Prophet Muhammad in the latest issue of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo.

With angry protesters indulging in stone pelting, security forces had to resort to tear-gas to disrupt the crowd.

Earlier, Police detained Mohammed Yasin Malik, a pro-independence leader, who called Friday's strike and protests against the magazine's latest issue.
