South Africa: 17-year-old dies after gang-rape
A 17-year-old girl died of injuries inflicted in a gang-rape over the weekend, provoking rare outrage on Wednesday in a country inured to some of the world's highest levels of sexual violence.


The victim identified one of her attackers before she died. Hospital staff who battled to save her life were given counseling because of the horrific nature of her injuries.The case has echoes of the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old student on a New Delhi bus that has triggered huge protests in India against endemic anti-female violence.
