David Cameron pays tribute to Amritsar victims

David Cameron has completed his visit to India, and, on the last day of the trip, became the first serving Prime Minister to pay his respects to thousands of innocent Indians who were massacred in Amritsar in 1919 by British troops.

Cameron, who laid a wreath and signed a book of condolence on the final day of his visit to India, said it was a "deeply shameful" moment in Britain's history and an incident that should not be forgotten.
