Protests in Kolkata against a controversial Indian citizenship law have continued into their second day.

Axar.az reports citing BBC that the new law entitles non-Muslim migrants from three Muslim-majority countries to citizenship if they are facing religious persecution.

On Saturday, protesters blocked motorways and attacked trains and stations in West Bengal's capital.

A curfew was also imposed in Guwahati, in the north-eastern state Assam, after two people died in clashes this week.

The curfew was lifted from 09:00 local time (03:30 GMT) until 16:00 (10:30 GMT) on Saturday. Protest groups in Guwahati have said they plan to defy the curfew on Saturday evening.

The UK, US, and Canada have issued travel warnings for people visiting India's north-east, telling their citizens to "exercise caution" if traveling to the region.
