India rocked by deadly protests over sex attacks

- +

Police shot dead a journalist Sunday during a protest over a sex assault on an actress in northeast India as security forces in New Delhi fired tear gas at new demonstrations over a student's gang-rape. 

Demonstrators react as police unleash a water cannon during a protest in New Delhi on December 22, 2012 calling for better safety for women following the rape of a student last week. The student has begun to recount her ordeal to police, reports said Sunday, as authorities reacted to violent protests by banning demonstrations in the capital.

After the victim of last Sunday's gang-rape in Delhi began recounting her ordeal to police, a wave of revulsion over sex crimes spread to the remote state of Manipur where a protest was held over the attempted rape of the actress.
