India's supreme court on Monday upheld death sentences handed down to three men over the gang-rape and murder of a woman in New Delhi in 2012, saying there were no grounds for a review.

Jyoti Singh was raped by a gang of five men and a teenager on a bus. The case triggered angry protests by thousands of people as well as soul-searching about the country's treatment of women.
