Climate change 'fueling deadly India lightning strikes'

In this file photo taken on May 15, 2015 a pedestrian walks with an umbrella as lightning strikes during an evening thunderstorm in Jammu. Lightning strikes killed 147 people in the north Indian state of Bihar over the last 10 days, officials said on July 5, 2020, warning of more extreme weather conditions to come, driven by climate change. Around 215 people -- farmers, rural laborers and cattle graziers -- have now died from strikes in the country's poorest state, authorities said. AFP / rakesh
