Displaced in India's Assam promised aid

After criticism of government efforts, prime minister tours area vows to help those affected by ethnic violence.

    Following mounting criticism that the government was not doing enough to help victims of ethnic violence in India's Assam state, Manmohan Singh, the country's prime minister, has toured affected areas and vowed to step up aid efforts.

    Many of those who fled the unrest are suffering in overcrowded and squalid relief camps.
