Protests Over Water In India

Protests Over Water In India

Riots have broken out in the country's technology hub following a court decision to divert some water to a neighboring state. Demonstrators take to the streets torching vehicles and throwing stones. Officials say at least 1 person has been killed after police opened fire to quell the protests. The Cauvery river has been a source of tension for 100+ years between the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. A curfew is in place and some 15,000 police officers have been deployed to the area. Indian PM Narendra Modi says the 2 states need to resolve the dispute peacefully.
