An Indian court sentenced on Friday three men to death for raping photojournalist in Mumbai last year.

It was the first death sentences to be handed down for multiple sex attacks since the law was toughened last year, according to AFP.

A judge handed down the sentences at a court in Mumbai following the trio's conviction for the two separate attacks at the same abandoned mill compound in the city last year, including an attack on a photographer that made global headlines.
