India airport slum deemed a 'terror risk'

Government wants impoverished community next to Mumbai's airport runway to move, citing security threat.

    Thousands of Indians live in a slum on the doorstep of Mumbai airport. From a distance it appears as though the impoverished community is part of the runway.

    Experts are now saying the proximity has increased security risks and authorities are urging residents of the slum to move out. 

    But the community says it will not do so without challenging the government's initiative.
