    India’s parliament has passed a controversial bill that splits the disputed region of Indian-Administered Kashmir into two federally run territories.

    This comes after the government revoked the region’s autonomy - under Article 370 of the constitution - following a massive troop build-up and the shutting of phone and internet services in the region.
