90,000 Indians Lynch Rape Suspect

A mob of 90,000 in the Indian state of Nagaland broke into a jail and lynched a suspected rapist in public on Thursday night. Syed Farid Khan, a Muslim immigrant from neighboring Bangladesh, was accused of rape by a girl last week. The massive crowd broke into the jail, and stripped and beat him before tying his body to a motorcycle and dragging it 7 kilometers to a clock tower, where he was strung up for display. The crowd also destroyed Muslims’ houses and shops in town.
