(12-27 16:29)

Police in India have arrested 10 people for their involvement in the gang rape of a 21-year-old woman in the southern territory of Puducherry on Christmas eve.
The victim worked in an IT company in southern Tamil Nadu state.
Two police officers have been suspended for lapses in handling the attack, local media reports said.
“We have arrested 10 people for the crime, including three of the victim's friends for failing to inform the incident in the state's Karaikal area. The woman was abducted and then gang raped by members of two groups twice. She is now recovering at a local hospital where her condition is stable," a police spokesman said.
A manhunt is underway to capture the other members of the two groups, the official said, adding that the girl was picked up first by one group, gang raped, and then another group did the same after the first released her.
