Delhi rape suspects to be charged

Five men in India are to be charged with the murder of a medical student who was gang-raped on a Delhi bus.

The 23-year-old victim died at the weekend from injuries she sustained during the 16 December attack, in an incident that sparked national outrage.

Protests have been taking place every day since the attack with protesters expressing anger over attitudes to women in India and calling for changes to the laws on violence against women.

The victim's father told BBC News he had moved his family to the capital to give his children a better future.

Andrew North reports.
