Death for rape

KUWAIT CITY (Reuter) - A Kuwaiti man, Mohammad Kulaib, 28, was sentenced to death yesterday for leading the gang rape of a 10-year-old Egyptian girl. Three teenagers too young for the gallows or life imprisonment were jailed for 10 years for taking part in the crime. The court heard that the gang grabbed the girl as she played with friends outside her home. They pushed her into a car and drove to a house where she was raped for 48 hours before police tracked them down.
