Pakistan observed a 'Black Day' on Thursday

Pakistan observed a 'Black Day' on Thursday to coincide with India's Independence Day celebrations, in protest at New Delhi's decision to revoke special status for its portion of the contested Kashmir region.


India's decision this month, along with a communications blackout and curbs on the movement of those in Indian-administered Kashmir, caused fury in Pakistan, which cut trade and transport links and expelled India's envoy in retaliation.
