Justice at last over Bhopal gas tragedy?

Safety campaigners have welcomed a new court order to arrest the boss responsible for the Bhopal disaster.

Over 10,000 people were killed at Bhopal in December 1984. In July, a judge in Bhopal ordered the arrest of Warren Anderson, the chief executive of Union Carbide. He is charged with culpable homicide not amounting to murder, grievous assault and other serious crimes.
