Violence leaves thousands homeless in Assam

Hundreds of thousands displaced by ethnic riots in India remain stranded in makeshift camps, refusing to return home.

    Ethnic riots in northeastern India in July left dozens of people dead and forced many people from their homes.

    The violence pitted Muslim Bengali settlers against the mainly Hindu Bodo tribes in Assam state.

    Hundreds of thousands of people from both are still homeless, stuck in relief camps, and too afraid to return home.
