Somali people rally against child rape in Baidoa town

BAIDOA, Somalia – A group of young people have taken streets in Baidoa town, some 250km south west of Mogadishu to protest against child rape.

The protesters were demanding swift justice for victims of child sexual abuse, a day after two soldiers accused of raping a 10 year old boy in July were executed by firing squad.
