"All back full"

The Pakistani government has reversed engines and is now not going to extend the 21st Amendment military courts to Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Gilgit-Baltistan (GB), according to this report in Dawn. AJK and GB are part of Pakistan but are not covered by the country's Constitution. The reason for the change in policy has not been disclosed, but according to Dawn's account it presumably has to do with the areas' constitutional status.
