    Gang Rape, Murder Sparks Outrage in India

    Hundreds hit the country's streets this weekend demanding justice in yet another brutal assault on a woman. Four men stand accused of raping, murdering and burning a 27-year-old veterinarian last week. In Hyderabad, crowds swarmed the jail where the suspects were being held, and protesters turned away politicians and film stars from the victim's home. Meanwhile, in New Delhi a 24-year-old woman said she was detained and assaulted by police for protesting alone near Parliament.
