Indian activist to end hunger strike

Anna Hazare relents after parliament expressed non-binding support for parts of his anti-graft plan.

    India's anti-corruption campaigner Anna Hazare has agreed to end his hunger strike on Sunday.

    Hazare has been on a fast-unto-death protest against corruption in the country.

    He agreed to end his 12-day fast, which has galvanised people's support across the nation, after India's parliament unanimously backed his demands.
