Bus shelters homeless

February 09 2014
Abandoned buses have been turned over to Indian authorities

Abandoned buses have been turned over to authorities in India as shelters for the homeless, reports Al Jazeera.

Officials also plan to use portable cabins and other unused mobile containers as shelters.

The move by the newly-elected Aam Aadmi Party in New Delhi is being hailed by some for fulfilling a promise to provide badly-needed emergency shelters.

This winter has been recognised as India's most severe in 18 years, particularly affecting an estimated 100,000 homeless people.
