India backs embattled climate chief Pachauri

Dr Rajendra Pachauri: 'The science... is as compelling as one would expect it to be'
India has firmly backed climate change chief Rajendra Pachauri - who has been under attack over recent scientific errors - at UN-led talks in Delhi.

PM Manmohan Singh said India had "full confidence" in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and its chairman, Dr Pachauri.

Environment minister Jairam Ramesh, previously critical of the IPCC, said the government backed him to the hilt.
