Australian teen jailed over Indian student killing

[ via BBC News / Asia ] 22 Dec

An Australian teenager who stabbed an Indian student to death in an attack that sparked a diplomatic row with India has been jailed for eight years.
The 17-year-old, who cannot be named, admitted killing Nitin Garg in a Melbourne park in January 2010.

The attack - and a string of others against Indian nationals in Australia - caused anger in India over what some commentators called racist violence.
