A Kenyan court has sentenced three men to death for stripping naked and abusing a woman during a wave of attacks by mobs claiming that women were inappropriately dressed.

Most of the attacks in 2014 were captured on cell phone video.

The attacks prompted protests in Kenya called #MyDressMyChoice.
