Protesters demand apology from U.S. over diplomat's treatment

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Supporters of a right-wing opposition party held a small protest near the U.S. embassy in New Delhi on Wednesday. About 30 demonstrators, some wearing masks of President Barack Obama and sarongs made from the U.S. flag, demanded an apology over the treatment of an Indian diplomat who was strip-searched after her arrest in New York last week. The diplomatic spat was triggered on the December 12 with the arrest of Devyani Khobragade, a deputy consul general at the Indian consulate in New York, on charges of visa fraud and allegedly underpaying her housekeeper, an Indian national. In an email to colleagues, Khobragade complained of "repeated handcuffing, stripping and cavity searches, swabbing" and being detained in a holding cell with petty criminals despite her "incessant assertions of immunity".
