Indian Christians demand more government protection

Demonstrators in Delhi call for government action against religious discrimination.

    Members of New Delhi's Christian community have been demonstrating against recent attacks on churches and religious discrimination.

    Police in the Indian capital detained hundreds of protesters who were marching to the residence of the home minister on Thursday.

    They were accusing the BJP-led central government of not doing enough to protect them.
