Delhi holds vigils to remember gang-rape victim

In India, women's groups are among those holding vigils across the capital, Delhi, in memory of a student who died after she was gang-raped a year ago.

Her family, who are planning a small memorial service, told the BBC that they wanted to keep her memory alive as long as possible.

The rape shocked Indians and prompted protests across the country and the introduction of tougher laws on rape and special fast-track courts to try suspects.
