India pilots vow to continue hunger strike

Hundreds of Air India workers pledge to continue protest over allegedly poor pay and conditions.

    A hunger strike launched by some 300 Air India pilots over pay and work conditions has continued for a week.

    More than 100 of the protesters have already been sacked for striking after the hunger protest was deemed illegal.

    Many of the pilots say they will continue to refuse food until their demands are met.
