Fury in Kenya as men walk free after brutal schoolgirl rape
NAIROBI (AFP) - Kenyans are demanding justice after three men accused of brutally gang raping a school girl and dumping her body in a pit latrine were ordered to cut grass as punishment.
The ferocious attack and lack of action towards those who carried it out has sparked outrage and deep anger.
The 16-year old girl was reportedly attacked, beaten and then raped by six men as she returned from her grandfather's funeral in western Kenya in June, before the gang dumped her, bleeding and unconscious, in a deep sewage ditch.
The victim knew some of the attackers, and three of them were taken by villagers to the local police station, The Nation newspaper said.
