India's gem trade feels blast impact

The latest attack in Mumbai targeted the hub of a multi-billion-dollar industry - diamond cutting and polishing.

    Two of the three explosions in Mumbai earlier this week targeted the Indian financial hub's diamond and jewellery markets.

    An estimated 85 per cent of all the world's rough diamonds pass through India to be cut and polished.

    Al Jazeera's Prerna Suri reports from Mumbai's Zaveri Bazar on the recent attacks' impact on the multi-billion-dollar industry.
