India on Thursday formally implemented legislation approved by Parliament in early August that removes Indian-controlled Kashmir's semi-autonomous status and begins direct federal rule of the disputed area amid a harsh security lockdown and widespread public disenchantment. The most visible change is the absence of Kashmir's own flag and constitution, which were eliminated as part of the region's new status. (AP Photo/Mukhtar Khan)
