All five men wanted over the gang rape of a 22-year-old photo journalist in the Indian city of Mumbai on Thursday have been arrested.

The last suspect was arrested in the capital, Delhi, on Sunday, and is being brought back to Mumbai, police said.

The woman was attacked at an abandoned textile mill in the centre of the city, where she was on a photo assignment with a male colleague at the time.

The case has renewed public outrage over sexual violence in India.

A 19-year-old unemployed man from south Mumbai was first arrested on Friday, and police made another two arrests on Saturday.

The female victim, who is in hospital with multiple injuries, has said she is anxious to return to work after the attack.
