India: Two teens were killed in rioting in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand, as police cracked down on nationwide protests against two leaders of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party making insulting statements about Prophet Muhammad (BJP).

Mudasir, 14, and Sahil Ansari, 19, were killed in a protest in Ranchi, Jharkhand’s capital, following congregational Friday prayers demanding the arrest of two BJP leaders. Their relatives told Al Jazeera that the police used excessive force against the protestors.
