Indian Anti-Corruption Bill Stalls

It might have been too soon to stop that hunger strike. After India's anti-corruption bill was cleared by the country's lower house earlier this week, it stalled in the upper house on Thursday after 13 hours of debate. Parliament will reconvene early next year, though it's unclear exactly when. The bill finally came up to a vote after months of demonstrations by Anna Hazare and his followers. Hazare aborted a hunger strike on Wednesday, citing poor health, though he says he will continue his campaign to strengthen the proposed corruption ombudsman.
