World news is abuzz after four men were convicted yesterday in the brutal rape and murder of a young Indian woman last December on a bus in New Delhi, a crime that has stunned and outraged the people of India.

An article was published in the UK Guardian yesterday that is one of the best pieces of journalism I have read in a long time. I found it informative on the economic plight of India's marginalized population and the events that lead up to the night of the brutal gang rape. It looks at the background and family history of both the family of the convicted men and the family of the rape victim. It was difficult to read in parts, so please be advised.
