Hundreds of protesters march through Nairobi to demand justice for a 16-year-old gang rape victim after her six attackers were ordered by police to cut grass as their punishment.

The 16 year-old girl – given the pseudonym Liz by the media - was attacked in June when she was raped by six men who then threw her unconscious body down a latrine pit. Several of the suspected perpetrators were caught, but only made to mow the lawn of the police station before being set free.

Liz is now wheelchair-bound, and according to one protester, Fanis Lisegali, Liz also now suffers from other health problems including a fistula.

An online petition to bring her attackers to justice has got 1.3 million signatures.
