Indian man attacked in Melbourne, Australia by mob

An Indian man is in a serious condition in a Melbourne hospital after being attacked and set alight by a gang. It comes a week after an Indian graduate student was stabbed to death in the city, prompting a travel advisory from the Indian government.

The 29-year-old man attacked on Saturday was returning home from a dinner party with his wife when he was set upon.

Simone Knox reports.
