    Snaking around roadblocks, sometimes taking cover in strangers' homes and hiding cameras in vegetable bags, the three photographers captured images of protests, police and paramilitary action and daily life. Then -- because there was a communication blackout in the state -- they headed to the airport to persuade travelers to carry the memory cards or pen drives containing their photos and get them to the AP's office in New Delhi.
