Afghan three-year-old fighting for life after rape

A three-year-old girl is fighting for her life in Afghanistan after being brutally raped.

Women's rights activists say it is one of the worst cases they have dealt with. Police have arrested an 18-year-old man in connection with the attack.

The BBC's Richard Galpin travelled with the family as they brought the girl from their home in northern Afghanistan to hospital in the capital Kabul.
