Indian activist Anna Hazare began a public hunger strike in the country's capital Friday, accompanied by thousands of cheering supporters.
The 74-year-old campaigner, who is seeking stronger anti-corruption measures in India, was greeted by crowds as he left a jailhouse in New Delhi earlier to make his way to the city's large Ramlila Grounds.
He will stage the two-week protest there after police relaxed their conditions. Supporters say he began fasting while still in jail.
Hazare traveled from the jail in an open-top truck decorated with Indian flags, as thousands of citizens marched along.FULL STORY
