Hindu extremists clash Muslims in mosque demolition anniversary
Hindu extremists and Muslim protesters have clashed in New Delhi as both groups gathered to mark the anniversary of the 1992 destruction of a 16th-century mosque.

Indian police separated the groups and detained several dozen people, police inspector Harcharan Verma said, adding that there were a handful of injuries, although none were serious.

Several hundred members of Shiv Sena, a hardline Hindu group, marched in New Delhi to celebrate the destruction of the Babri mosque 15 years ago by Hindu extremists, an event that inflamed India and led to widespread Hindu-Muslim riots.
