    Default India gang-rape victim dies.

    BBC News - Delhi gang-rape victim dies in hospital in Singapore

    I'm aware that at least one person, the bus driver, has been arrested. The crime led to riots in which a policeman and a journalist were killed.

    I hope that justice will be done.

    India has a lot to answer for with regard to the rights of females, i.e. "honour" killings, sex-selective abortion (it's illegal but the law isn't enforced), "eve teasing".

    The Irish government should protest to India.

    Very sad story.

    There was a young woman (Iranian?) on The Frontline before Christmas who got some grief from Eamon Dunphy when she suggested that Irish people should be more grateful for their civil rights.

    I think she was right. We are luckier than we know.

    Indian Ambassador has some balls in fairness. Any self respecting government would have given him a kick up the arse.

    There is more than a hint of irony in that post.
    Boycott the "Irish" Sun rag.
