Decision due on Indian oil deal

A panel of India's ministers are meeting to consider the long-delayed sale of Cairn Energy's Indian assets to mining giant Vedanta.

The deal is worth almost $10bn (£6bn). It was first signed nine months ago, but has struggled to win regulatory approval.

A deadline for a decision has been set for this week. Shilpa Kannan reports from Delhi.
