   NEW DELHI (AP) - An Indian court has convicted four men in the December gang rape of a young woman on a moving bus in New Delhi.

   The men were convicted Tuesday and face the possibility of hanging.  Sentences are expected to be handed down Wednesday.

   The brutal rape set off waves of protest in India, giving voice to years of anger over the treatment of women and a silent epidemic of sexual harassment and rape.

NEW DELHI (AP) — Police say they've arrested nine people, including builders, police officers and municipality officials, for colluding to illegally construct a residential building in India's financial capital that collapsed, killing 74 people.

 

Police commissioner K.P. Raghuvanshi says two builders were arrested for allegedly paying bribes to police and municipality officials to construct the eight-story building in the Mumbai suburb of Thane without any official sanction.

 

The building came crashing down on Thursday in the country's worst house collapse in recent decades.

 

Raghuvanshi said Sunday that police will formally charge the nine with culpable homicide and causing death by negligence at the end of an investigation into the accident.

 

If convicted, they can be sentenced to up to life in prison.
