'Ghazal King' Jagjit Singh dies


Renowned Indian singer Jagjit Singh has died in Mumbai (Bombay), aged 70.

He suffered a stroke last month, and had been in a coma in hospital ever since.

Mr Singh was best known for his ghazals, semi-classical songs often performed in Urdu.

He was credited for bringing this specific type of music to a wider Asian audience.
