Golden Temple attack: UK advice 'had limited impact'
A UK military officer's advice to Indian authorities had only a "limited impact" on the final plan for the 1984 attack on an Indian temple, MPs have been told.
Foreign Secretary William Hague was delivering the findings of a review into claims an SAS officer helped Delhi plan the raid which killed hundreds.
The storming of Amritsar's Golden Temple, a holy shrine for Sikhs, was intended to flush out Sikh separatists.
Mr Hague said UK assistance was "purely advisory" and was given months beforehand.
