Heatwave in India kills over a dozen civilians
Issued on: Modified:
The severe heatwave has yet to break, and temperatures of over 50°C are approaching India's record high of 51°C set in 2016. There is little relief for civilians as they battle heatstroke and fight for access to ice and water. France 24 journalist Yuka Royer reports that, "police have been deployed in some provinces to protect water tankers and water sources."
