The trial of 5 men accused of the fatal gang-rape of a 23-year-old student on a moving New Delhi bus was set to open today in a special "fast-track" court established to deliver speedy justice.

Emotions are still running high in India over the brutal attack on the student in mid-December that sparked violent street protests over the lack of safety for women and impassioned calls for harsher laws to punish rapists.

The five men face murder, rape, robbery, kidnapping and other charges, with prosecutors expected to demand the death penalty.

Proceedings are expected to begin at 2:30 pm.
