The relatives of 19 Gambian children whose deaths were linked to toxic cough syrups made in India have sued Indian drugmaker Maiden Pharmaceuticals as well as local health authorities, with the first court hearing scheduled for October. At least 73 children, mostly babies and toddlers, died from acute kidney injury in The Gambia last year after consuming the medication. Our correspondents have been speaking to the bereaved parents on a quest for justice.
