Somali court: Jail terms for rape victim, reporter

A court official in Mogadishu says that a woman who has said she was raped by security forces and a reporter have each been sentenced to one year in prison.

 

The official, Ahmed Aden Farah, said the court based its decision on medical evidence the woman was not raped. Rights groups have decried the case as politically motivated because the woman had accused security forces of the sexual assault. (AP)
