Tamil activists across the world are mourning the death of Ram Jethmalani, the veteran Indian lawyer who long supported Tamils.

 

Mr Jethmalani, a former Indian law minister, aged 95, died on Sunday.

 

Mr Jethmalani represented three Tamils who were on death row after being convicted of assassinating Rajiv Gandhi, and was instrumental in persuading the Indian Supreme Court to commute their death sentences to life imprisonment.
