Victims tell tales of horror in India's Assam

Survivors take shelter in relief camps, where there is no clean drinking water and medical facilities.

    Indian security forces are patrolling streets in northeast Assam state after days of rioting between Bodo tribesmen and Muslim settlers left at least 38 people dead.

    Thousands, who have taken shelter in relief camps, say the troops came too late.

    They have harrowing time at the relief camp, as there is no clean drinking water, electricity, not even doctors for the sick children.
