India growth slows to 5% in fresh blow to Modi

India's economic growth slowed for the fifth straight quarter in the April-to-June period to 5.0 percent, government figures showed Friday in a fresh blow to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The expansion in Asia's third-largest economy was down from 5.8 percent in the last quarter and came in below predictions of 5.7 percent by analysts.
