India lunch deaths children


Nineteen of the 22 children who died after eating a tainted free school meal in India's Bihar state have been buried in and around the school grounds.

Angry parents say they want the graves to serve as a reminder that the children died due to state negligence.

A total of 47 primary school children fell ill after consuming the meal of rice and soybeans on Tuesday.

A doctor at the local hospital said a chemical used in pesticides was the likely cause of contamination.
