French schoolgirl raped and murdered by 'teen released from prison'

France is in a collective state of shock over the murder and rape of a 13-year-old schoolgirl.

It has emerged that the teenager accused of killing her spent time in prison on previous charges of rape less than a year ago.

The French government has condemned the judiciary's handling of the case.
