The attack in the heart of the city is the latest bringing global focus to sexual violence in India. Police say the 51-year-old woman had asked for directions from a group of men, who lured her to a secluded place and then robbed, beat and sexually assaulted her at knife-point.

"It’s another instance of the pot calling the kettle black," he says.
Kay doesn’t buy the NSA’s insistence that it never shares secrets with U.S. CEOs. He says it’s just too easy to let juicy stuff slip.
"It would be easy enough to have somebody who knows how to do these things approach the company directly and just say, hey -- by the way, this might be of interest to you," he explains.
Kay says it would be of interest to the NSA because more and more, getting an advantage economically, is part of national security.
