Delhi rape victim's father says attitudes must change

The trial of five men over the gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old woman has begun at a specially convened fast-track court in India's capital, Delhi.

If convicted, the men could face the death penalty. A sixth suspect, who is thought to be 17, is expected to be tried by a juvenile court.

The case has shocked India and sparked a debate about the treatment of women.

The victim's father, who cannot be named in India, told the BBC's Andrew North that attitudes towards women must change.
