Somali men sentenced to death for rape, murder


A court in Somalia has handed down death sentences to three men for the rape and murder of a 12-year-old.

The court in Somalia’s northern semi-autonomous state of Puntland acquitted seven others.

The girl was abducted from a market in Galkayo town in February.

Her body was discovered the next morning and a post-mortem found that that she had been strangled to death after being gang-raped.

The atrocity led to street protests as well as an angry reaction on social media with calls for the Puntland government to take action.
