    Nearly 10,000 protesters have held a day-long hunger strike in northeast India.

    The state of Assam has seen much protest violence since the passing of a controversial new citizenship law which offers a path to citizenship for six minority religious groups from neighbouring countries but excludes Muslims.

    However, residents of Assam are split on the issue, with many against further migration.
