New Delhi - Five villagers have confessed to gang-raping a Swiss tourist in central India, police said on Sunday, in an incident that renewed focus on the rampant violence against women in the country.

The woman was on a cycling holiday with her husband in impoverished Madhya Pradesh state, when six men attacked the couple on Friday night, sexually assaulting the woman and robbing the pair, police said.
