Seven men in Sudan found guilty of drugging and raping a 14-year-old girl were sentenced to death by hanging on Monday, reports say. The victims’ lawyer, called the sentence “more than just”.

Speaking to the AFP, the lawyer Salma Mohammedahmed Hamed said Judge Ahmed Khalil Albahar ruled on the case on Sunday at a court in Khartoum’s twin city of Omdurman, also sentencing six other minors who abused the girl to 10 years each in a reformatory. Cases of gang rape are rare in the Islamist-run state.

“He found them guilty by the evidence he received of raping a child,” he said. All 13 of them abused her. “They gave her a cup of juice containing drugs and then raped her,” Hamed said. In his verdict, the judge cited a presidential directive calling for heavier punishments of s*x crimes. Hamed said the girl was treated at a rape trauma centre and has returned to school.
