India: Over 350 detained as protests over citizenship bill continue in Delhi

More than 350 people were reportedly detained outside Uttar Pradesh Bhawan in New Delhi on Friday, as they attempted to stage a rally against police brutality in protests sparked by the recently passed Citizenship (Amendment) Act. Footage shows scores of protesters being taken away in police vehicles. Large gatherings have been banned in several parts of the capital, including near Uttar... Еще Pradesh Bhawan. India has been swept by protests after Indian Parliament passed the bill on December 11, entitling non-Muslim migrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan to Indian citizenship if they entered the country before 2015. Critics of the bill believe that it could result in further exclusion of some 200 million Muslims living in the country.
