(Newser) – The five men facing the death penalty in India in the gang rape and murder of a young woman on a bus pleaded not guilty today, reports the Guardian. (A sixth suspect is being tried as a juvenile and will face a maximum of three years.) The case is being fast-tracked, and witnesses will begin testimony on Tuesday. Don't expect many details to emerge, however, reports the Indian Express, because a strict media blackout is being enforced.
