US Ambassador to India Nancy Powell is to meet controversial Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi soon.

This is seen as a significant shift in the US stance towards Modi, the main opposition party's candidate for prime minister.

Modi has been criticised for his handling of Hindu-Muslim riots in 2002.

Riots erupted after 60 Hindu pilgrims died in a train fire which Muslims were blamed for igniting.
