Tourist gang-raped in central India

A Swiss tourist has been gang-raped in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, according to local media.

Police say the woman and her husband had camped out for the night in a forest after cycling from the town of Orchha on Friday. They were attacked, had their belongings stolen and the woman was gang-raped. Thirteen men are reportedly being questioned by police.

India has seen outrage and protests against rape and attacks on women since the fatal gang-rape of a young woman in a moving bus in New Delhi in December.
