More than 30 people have been killed in anti-Christian violence in Orissa's Kandhamal district. The nun said up to 50 men tore off her clothes before she was raped by one of them, then paraded down the road and beaten with sticks. She said that when she asked for protection from the Orissa police, they were unwilling to help, adding: "They were friendly with the attackers."

Pubs in London have been changing ever since The Eagle opened in Farringdon Road 15 years ago, when it was still largely patronised by Guardian senior management and postmen from nearby Mount Pleasant (and at that time few people could tell the difference). This was the capital's first gastropub, the first pub to be properly gutted, leaving the wooden floors, the ale and the wrought iron tables and chairs. They added an enormous blackboard on to which they scrawled the day's menu, bought in some serious wines, and created the template for the open kitchen (cooking, it goes without saying, fairly extraordinary pub grub, most of it Italian-based). I was working nearby at The Face at the time, and it was good sport watching the extravagantly dressed members of the fashion team sharing tables with people who didn't wear three-legged trousers as a matter of course.
