A 22-year-old photojournalist has been gang-raped and her male colleague beaten by five men in Mumbai.

This has sparked a wave of protests across India similar to those held last December when a student died from her injuries after being brutally gang-raped on a bus.

The protests last December lead to tougher laws being introduced for crimes against women.

Police have now arrested a third suspect.
