Razia Bee's testimony is one person's account of what happened when toxic gases leaked from Union Carbide's chemical factory near Bhopal, in India, on 3 December 1984. Around 3,000 people died in the days following the leak, with many tens of thousands more suffering ill effects.
Campaigners estimate that as many as 20,000 people ultimately died from exposure to the poisonous gases. The company, now part of Dow Chemical, has been bitterly criticised for making woefully inadequate compensation payments.
