The men behind the iconic Gujarat riot photo meet

More than 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, died in the riots that erupted after 60 Hindus were killed in a train fire in India's Gujarat state in 2002.

One photograph, of a man looking on in horror at the violence, became an iconic image of the bloodshed.

The BBC brought the photographer and his subject together for the first time.

Rupa Jha reports.
