NEW DELHI - Five men accused in the fatal gang rape of a young woman on a New Delhi bus have arrived at a special fast-track court for the start of their trial.

The court is expected to hear opening arguments Thursday as the rape and murder trial gets underway. A sixth suspect claims to be a juvenile and is expected to be tried in a juvenile court.

Weeks of protests following the attack last month prompted the government to set up the special court to deal swiftly with crimes against women.
