Angry protesters clashed with police outside Bollywood star Salman Khan's home in Mumbai on Sunday following the actor’s tweet in defense of Yakub Memon, who is due to be executed for his role in the 1993 Mumbai bombings. The protests were organized by the youth wing of India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, after Khan tweeted that the brother of Yakub Memon, Tiger, should be hung instead. Tiger Memon was one of two main suspects in the 1993 Mumbai blasts, which killed 257 people and injured over 700.
