Heated up in Bangalore over release of water to Tamil Nadu
Activists adding fuel to a burning barricade during a protest in Bangalore, India, on Monday. Hundreds had staged protests across the city after a Supreme Court order for Karnataka state, of which Bangalore is
the capital, to release 340 cubic metres per second of water from a river to Tamil Nadu for the next 10 days. The dispute stretches back decades, fuelled by India's water shortages.
A curfew was imposed in Bangalore yesterday after a protester was killed.
