India Marks 60th Anniversary of Independence Under Tight Security


India's prime minister has called for an end to poverty during celebrations to mark the nation's 60th year of independence from British rule.

Speaking behind a bullet-proof screen at India's historic Red Fort in the capital, Manmohan Singh said independence will not be complete until poverty in India is eradicated. He also set a five-year goal to eliminate malnutrition and promised to expand access to education.

Celebrations took place under extremely tight security as officials reported threats from al-Qaida and Indian separatist groups.

As in the rest of the country, West Bengal also celebrated the occasion.

Goutam Gupta has the details.
