India: Indian troops try to stop bloodshed
Soldiers deploy across the Indian state of Gujarat in an attempt to quell the worst sectarian violence in 10 years.
About 1,000 paramilitary troops were ordered in after Hindus across the state went on the rampage to avenge the arson attack on the train, which was carrying activists back from the disputed holy site of Ayodhya.
