Many girls in India get married when they are still kids. Children marriages are banned in this country, but they still happen. Government survey in 2006 reported that 45 % of Indian girls were married being younger than 18 years old. Local police raids child marriage ceremonies when it gets a chance because young girls who are forced to marry boys or old men are often at risk of violence and sexual abuse. Inside this post you can find photos of child brides taken by Reuters' photographers.

Survivors of a plane crash that killed 158 people have told today how they jumped from the aircraft as it began to break up

The Air India plane overshot the runway in Mangalore at the southern Indian city's 'table-top' Bajpe airport, crashing into a gorge and killing all but a few of the 169 passengers on board.

Nearby residents rushed to the scene following the incident at around 6.30am (local time), describing 'shocking' scenes as they pulled charred bodies from the wreckage. Around six people survived the crash and are currently being treated in nearby hospitals, officials said.
