The clashes first broke out on Sunday, ostensibly between protesters in favour of a controversial new Indian citizenship law and those against it. But they have since taken on religious overtones, with Hindu and Muslim mobs clashing violently. The clashes have come during US President Donald Trump’s first official visit to the country. The clashes are happening in Muslim-majority neighbourhoods in north-east Delhi – about 18km (11 miles) from the heart of the capital, where Mr Trump has been holding meetings with Indian leaders, diplomats and businessmen.
