Delhi police use water cannon on gang rape protesters

Police in the Indian capital, Delhi, have used water cannon to disperse crowds of people protesting over the gang rape of a 23-year-old student on a bus in the city on Sunday night.

The protesters were hosed as they tried to bring down metal barricades outside Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit's home, following the attack on the student - who remains in a critical condition - and her male friend.
