Ethnic unity concert held in Sydney

12:14 pm on 17 January 2010

Thousands of people attended a concert in Sydney on Saturday night aimed at uniting Australians and Indians.

The ABC reports there has been tension recently following a spate of violence against Indian students.

That intensified earlier this month when an Indian student, 21, was fatally stabbed in Melbourne.

The concert was designed to promote Australia as a safe and ethnically diverse nation. It was headlined by Slumdog Millionaire composer A R Raman.
