Kenya rape: Protest march over grass-cutting punishment

A petition has been handed to Kenyan police after three men accused of gang-raping a teenager were ordered to cut grass as a punishment.

The 16-year-old - referred to as Liz to protect her identity - was attacked and then thrown in a pit latrine, breaking her back.

Hundreds of people walked from Uhuru Park in the capital, Nairobi, to the police headquarters to hand over the petition, signed by 1.2 million people.

The BBC's Anne Soy reports from there.
