India's top court has lifted a ban on tourism in tiger reserves across the country but asked local governments to regulate visitors. In July the Supreme Court had ordered a complete ban on tourism inside tiger reserves while the government formulated new guidelines. The ban was lifted late Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012 after the government announced new rules aimed at allowing tourism to co-exist with conservation. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
