Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has postponed a three-day visit to India, the government said Friday, as violent protests continue over a controversial citizenship law in Gauhati, a northeastern Indian city in Assam state where Abe had planned to meet his counterpart, Narendra Modi.

In the city, mobs have been clashing with police, reportedly leaving at least two dead and 11 others injured. According to local reports, an indefinite curfew has been imposed.
