India: Woman gang-raped on 'elders' orders'
Police in India's West Bengal state have arrested 13 men in connection with a gang rape of a woman, allegedly on the orders of village elders who objected to her relationship with a man.
Officers said the the pre-meditated attack on Monday night was prompted by the relationship between a tribal woman and a non-tribal man from a nearby village.
The 20-year-old woman has been admitted to a hospital in a critical condition.
