India Communal Riots-Mob Violence.Add to Lightbox Download
An elderly Muslim woman's body whose throat was slashed and then set on fire lies outside of her home March 2, 2002 in Ahmedabad, India. Her home sat next door to a local police station but she and an untold number of others were brutally killed by angry mobs on a spree of vengeance. Troops arrived in India's riot-torn western state of Gujarat but were unable to quell the religious violence that brought back stark memories of Partition in 1947.
