>> Raped on the orders of a village council. The 16 years old girl in Pakistan was raped as revenge for her brother's alleged rape of another girl. Police have arrested 25 members of an informal village council accused of decreeing the attack. She was handed over to the victim's brother to be raped as retaliation.
The punishment took place last week. The case came to light when both families filed criminal charges, accusing each of the two sons of rape. Both victims and their mothers are now in a women's protection center. Pakistan has a centuries' old tradition of local councils or
handing down quick justice.
Villages often see them as preferable to a cumbersome legal system. Revenge rape, and the role of the juggles drew the world attention when an attack on a woman named Mahtan Mai was ordered in similar circumstrances. She went on to become a high profile campaigner for women's rights.
