Four men convicted in India gang rape case

The four may, who now face the possibility of hanging, are expected to be sentenced tomorrow.

AN INDIAN COURT has convicted four men in the December gang rape of a young woman on a moving bus in New Delhi.

Sentences for the men, who were convicted today and face the possibility of hanging, are expected to be handed down tomorrow.

Last month, a juvenile court handed down the first conviction in the fatal rape of the young woman sentencing a teen to three years in a reform home.

The brutal rape set off waves of protest in India, giving voice to years of anger over the treatment of women and a silent epidemic of sexual harassment and rape.
