4 Convicted For India Gang Rape

By  | 

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 Tuesday and face the possibility of hanging, are expected to be handed down Wednesday.

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.
