The date is 29 October. Nearly three months since the Indian government abrogated Article 370 of the constitution and stripped Jammu and Kashmir of its special rights.
The first high-level foreign delegation, comprising 23 European Union MPs, is on a two-day visit to Kashmir to...I quote... see the situation on the ground.

Who are these delegates and why is it important to know who they are?
