Five men have been sentenced to life in prison for gang-raping a Danish tourist in the heart of New Delhi's tourist district.

The men, all in their twenties, were found guilty earlier this week of raping and robbing the 52-year-old in 2014.

Nine men were initially accused. Three were juveniles being tried in a separate court and another died during his trial.
