Indian sex workers rally over law
Thousands of Indian sex workers have rallied in Delhi in a protest against the planned introduction of stricter anti-prostitution laws.

They say they will lose their income if parliament brings in laws penalising brothel owners and customers.

Prostitution is already illegal in India, but correspondents say the ban is rarely enforced.

The proposed changes to the legislation also include allowing prostitutes to publicly solicit for business.
