5-Year-Old India Rape Victim's Condition Stable

A five-year old girl is in stable condition in a hospital in India Sunday after being raped and tortured in a horrific crime that sparked a global outcry. A suspect was arrested Saturday.  The child, whose family lives in a slum on the outskirts of New Delhi, went missing on April 15 and was found, bruised and semiconscious, in the suspect’s home on Thursday. Activists have demanded tougher laws to deter sex offenders, with some agitating for capital punishment in special cases.
