Two to be questioned over rape of girl

Two men accused of raping their 11-year-old niece in Sen Sok district on Monday night are due to appear for questioning in Phnom Penh Municipal Court today. District deputy police chief Cheav Vibol said yesterday that officials were preparing documents for the court but declined to give further information about the case. Am Sam Ath, senior monitor for the rights group Lichado, said yesterday that 265 cases of rape were reported in the first 11 months of this year, 203 of which involved victims younger than 18. “There were seven cases of rape and murder, nine cases of gang rape, and in 21 cases the rapist was related to the victim – either a father, brother, uncle or cousin,” he said.
