    The trial of eight men accused of raping and murdering an eight-year-old girl in Indian-administered Kashmir has been moved to a neighbouring state.

    India's Supreme Court made the decision, after the victim's family and lawyer said they faced death threats.

    The incident led to protests across the country.
