Indian police arrest five in Delhi over assaults on Africans
Indian police say five people have been arrested over attacks on six Africans last Thursday, the latest in a number of assaults that have strained ties between African countries and India.
Earlier this month, a Congolese man was beaten to death following a dispute over hiring an auto-rickshaw.
India has promised tough action against attackers who target Africans.
Thousands of Africans are studying at Indian universities. A student group is holding an anti-racism rally next week.
Three separate cases have been registered following last Thursday's incidents, in which six African nationals suffered injuries.
Delhi police official Ishwar Singh said the scuffles on Thursday night took place after local residents objected to the Africans drinking alcohol and playing loud music in the street.
The Africans said they were racially abused and attacked by a mob.
