Irom Sharmila

India’s hunger-striking activist Irom Sharmila, center, speaks to reporters after a court appearance in Imphal in the north-eastern state of Manipur, India, Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2016. An Indian court has granted bail to the activist who has been force-fed for nearly 16 years, after she assured the judge that she planned to end her fast. Babloo Loitongbam, a rights activist close to Sharmila, says he expects her to be freed later Tuesday, once the paperwork is processed. (AP Photo/Anupam Nath)
