Arrests after Indian Mutiny graves smashed

Breaking News

Three men have been arrested and charged with vandalising the graves of British soldiers who died in the Indian Mutiny of 1857.

Graves in the New Delhi satellite town of Ghaziabad were smashed and burned following a wave of protests against British tourists currently visiting historical "Mutiny" sites.

A gang of 25 youths attacked the graves following several days of inflammatory anti-British rhetoric by local politicians and Hindi-language newspapers.
