Pakistan: Protesters march through Karachi in solidarity with Kashmir residents

Thousands were reported to march through the Pakistani city of Karachi on Pakistan's Independence Day on Wednesday, voicing their solidarity with the residents of the Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir. People were seen marching with flags of Pakistan and Azad Kashmir, a territory administrated by Pakistan, carrying anti-Indian banner. Tensions have been rising between India and Pakistan over... Еще the status of Jammu and Kashmir after an Indian presidential decree on August 5 revoked Article 370 of India's constitution which guaranteed substantial autonomy for the territory. The document banned Indians from outside the state from taking up local government jobs, buying land and permanently settling there. The move provoked strong reactions in Pakistan, leading Islamabad's authorities to announce they would cut bilateral trade with India and expel the Indian ambassador.
