HARGEISA, Somalia – A video showing four men sexually assaulting a young woman has sparked outrage across Somalia.
Footage posted on social media shows the woman screaming and trying to resist as the men take turns raping her.
Local women's rights activist Sadiya Ahmed says the woman is about 16 years old.
The attack happened in Goldogob, a town in the semi-autonomous region of Puntland. It was not clear when it happened.
Brendan Wynne, a spokesman for international women's group Donor Direct Action, says the woman is receiving counseling.
Three of the alleged attackers reportedly have been arrested by security forces in Puntland.
Traditional elders often try to settle rape cases through discussions, but local activists say they want the suspects to face trial under a tough new law against sex crimes.
