Morocco protest against rape-marriage law
Several hundred women's rights activists have demonstrated outside Morocco's parliament to demand the repeal of a law on sexual violence.
Morocco's penal code allows a rapist to marry his victim if she is a minor as a way of avoiding prosecution.
A 16-year-old girl, Amina Filali, killed herself a week ago after being severely beaten during a forced marriage to her rapist.
Nora Fakim reports.
