South Africa gang-rapist given double life sentence

A South African man found guilty of the rape and brutal murder of a 17-year-old girl has been sentenced to two life terms in prison by a court near Cape Town.

State prosecutors had requested this sentence - without parole - for Johannes Kana.

Anene Booysen died in February hours after she was mutilated in a gang-rape and attack that shocked the country.
