Over 70 Injured in New Delhi Protest

Neither tear gas nor water cannons could deter thousands of demonstrators from taking a stand in New Delhi, violating the Indian capital’s ban against protests for the second day in a row. The protesters are seeking justice for the 23-year-old woman who was gang-raped on a bus last week. According to a police spokesman, up to 35 protesters and 40 police personnel had been injured Saturday in just one of several anti-rape protests that have turned violent across India this past week.
