¬†Anger over Afghan girl’s flogging

Protests have been held in Afghanistan over the public flogging of a 16-year-old girl.

She was accused of having illicit relations, but relatives say she is a rape victim.

The parliament is investigating the case, but many say the government isn’t doing enough to protect women.
