We have Halacha that at least 6 people need to be fasting in order to read the Torah in a fast day. However, let's say there are 10 people and 5 are definitely fasting and one who accidentally ate (the other four aren't fasting at all). Can they read the Torah?

Inspired by You accidentally broke your fast*. Now what?
