One of the world's worst industrial accidents took place in India nearly 30 years ago, when a poisonous gas leak from a pesticide factory in Bhopal killed thousands of people.

A hunger strike by protesters took place in New Delhi over an increase in compensation for the victims of the incident, as well as a demand for the Supreme Court of India to acknowledge the actual heath status of victims and the right number of people killed in the accident.
