Bhopal, 25 years on

This essay is part of an occasional feature on this blog that presents compelling stories from elsewhere in the world, particularly Africa, that are little reported in the American media. It's part of my campaign to get people to realize there is a lot going on in the world outside the US, IsraelStine and the Trumped Up Enemy of the Month. A list of all pieces in this series can be found found here..

On the 25th anniversary of the Union Carbide poison gas leak catastrophe that killed thousands of people in Bhopal, India, BBC's From Our Own Correspondent has an essay on the human tragedy.
