Indian police fire on Bhutanese refugees

A Bhutanese refugee was killed and 11 injured after Indian police fired on them as they tried to cross the Nepal-India border to return to their homeland.
Mr Poudel says at least 11 others were injured in the shooting at the Mechi bridge.

Indian officials blamed the gathering of 7,000 refugees trying to cross the border for provoking the police action.
