Tension after workers kill tea plantation owner in India

Workers have killed the owner of a tea plantation in north-eastern India in a dispute over pay.

India is famed for its tea production; Darjeeling, one of the world's best-known teas, is grown in the Himalayas.

However, tea for the domestic market is grown on the plains and conditions for workers are often abysmal.
