Indian police arrested 470 people in the second day of protests by survivors of the 1984 Union Carbide gas leak in Bhopal who are demanding financial relief for thousands of people harmed by the disaster. Another 350 people were arrested Saturday, the first of three days of protests called by the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party outside the home of the chief of Madhya Pradesh region. The demonstrators are demanding $120-a-family relief payments promised by the government to victims. More than 2,000 people were killed and 200,000 injured in the disaster.
