- Story Text: Indian protesters burned Chinese-made goods and posters advertising Chinese products on Saturday (June 27) after a border clash between soldiers from both nations in a Himalayan valley earlier this month.
A small group of protesters in New Delhi called for a boycott of Chinese products.
On June 15, Indian and Chinese troops brawled for several hours in the Galwan Valley, using stones and sticks with nails embedded in them to beat each other, killing 20 Indian soldiers and injuring at least 76 more. China has not disclosed how many casualties its troops suffered.
After senior military commanders held parleys this week, both sides have since agreed to disengage their troops on the disputed border.
But in satellite images reviewed by Reuters, China appears to have added new structures near the site of the Galwan Valley clash that India says is on its side of the LAC. These include camouflaged tents or covered structures and a potential new camp under construction with walls or barricades.
