**India Rape Suspects Face Charges**
Police in India are set to formally charge six suspects in last month's gang rape of a 23-year-old woman who later died from her injuries.
The suspects are facing charges of kidnapping, rape and murder, and authorities say they will push for the death penalty if the men are convicted. One of the suspects has undergone testing to determine his age because juveniles in India cannot be charged with murder.
The government is expected to appoint attorneys to defend the men after bar association lawyers said they would not take part in the defense.
The unidentified woman died Saturday from severe internal injuries that her assailants caused with a metal rod during the attack on a bus December 16.
**Drone Strike Kills A Pakistani Militant Commander**
Pakistani security officials say U.S. drone strikes in tribal regions bordering Afghanistan have killed at least eight people, including Maulvi Nazir, a top militant commander in South Warziristan.
Officials said Thursday that Nazir, who was also known as Mullah Nazir, was one of several suspected militants killed during a strike in the village of Angoor Adda, late Wednesday.
They say at least one one drone attack occurred in North Waziristan. Pakistani news says three people were killed.
Nazir was the main militant commander in South Waziristan. His fighters reportedly have been more interested in attacking U.S.-led troops in Afghanistan than Pakistan's security forces. His faction is said to be allied with other al-Qaida-linked militant groups.
