Four men guilty of gang-raping photojournalist in Mumbai

This court in the Indian city of Mumbai has convicted four men of the gang rape of a photojournalist last year. The men have been found guilty of five offences, including, unnatural sex and destruction of evidence. Sentencing is set for Friday. (SOUNDBITE) (Hindi) INTERIOR MINISTER OF INDIA'S WESTERN PROVINCE OF MAHARASHTRA, R.R. PATIL, SAYING: "Today's verdict will send a strong message to criminals and they will not try to commit such crimes in future." The 22-year-old woman was attacked by five men while on assignment at this deserted mill in August. The fifth accused, believed to be under 18 at the time of the incident, is being tried in a juvenile court. The attack here provoked a public outcry and the introduction of tougher sexual assault laws, raising fresh questions about attitudes to women in the world's largest democracy.
