Woman Hanged From Tree in India

    Indian women travel in the women's compartment of a train early morning in Mumbai, India, Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013. Five men have been charged with attacking the 23-year-old woman and a male friend on a bus as it was driven through the streets of India's capital. The woman was raped and assaulted with a metal bar on Dec. 16, 2012 and eventually died of her injuries. The case has sparked protests across India by women and men who say India's legal system doesn't do enough to prevent attacks on women. (AP Photo/Rafiq Maqbool)

    Police in Bihar found a 45-year-old mother of four children hanging from a mango tree by her sari on Sunday. Though they are still investigating, there is evidence that she was sexually assaulted and that there was more than one attacker. The incident came days after a 29-year-old woman riding on a bus was raped by seven men and just weeks after the infamous gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old student on a bus in New Delhi on Dec. 16. The former finance minister of Punjab said, “It is a tragedy but at the same time I am not surprised. Until men fear the law then these types of crime are going to continue.”
