Storm over China's Sri Lanka port

India expresses concern over China's contruction projects in South Asia.

    Sri Lanka has opened a new port built with Chinese assistance, raising concerns in India, which worries that Beijing is expanding its influence in South Asia.

    But as Al Jazeera's Minelle Fernandez reports from Hambantota in southern Sri Lanka, authorities there are dismissing such concerns, saying China's interest is purely commercial.
