Now to India, where violence against women is raging on.
A girl is found hanged from a tree in the Uttar Pradesh state.

Authorities say the young girl’s body was found hanging from a tree outside of a village. This is the fourth such case in the same state over the last few weeks. On Thursday, an Indian woman said she was gang-raped by four officers at a police station there. Her claims came hours after a 44-year-old woman was also found hanged from a tree near the Nepalese border. Crimes against women in India have doubled in the last decade, sparking worldwide condemnations. In India, a rape case is reported every 20 minutes.
