Students from a government-run school in India's Bihar state have beaten up their teachers in protest at what they say is the poor quality of their lunch.

The violence in Nawada district came days after 23 children died from eating a school meal elsewhere in the state.

More than 100 students from a school in Bhikhampur village visited a government office to protest against the quality of the Mid-Day meal.

The teachers were assaulted when they came to give their side of the story.
