Bhopal Gas Tragedy: Children pay price 30 years after disaster

Bhopal gas tragedy… didn't end there for locals living around the Union Carbide chemical plant at the centre of the disaster, with many later giving birth to children with abnormalities…While the exact numbers are impossible to pin down, the streets near the now abandoned factory are full of families whose children born post-1984 have either died prematurely or have major health problems… But the government has not confirmed a link, which would have major implications in terms of compensation…Amnesty International…campaigning for more compensation, says there is clear evidence of poisoning…We are now dealing with inter-generational health problems which are being passed on from the parents to the next generation.
