Hamburg gang rape teenagers' suspended sentences spark anger

27 October 2016 Europe

Tens of thousands of Germans have signed a petition demanding a group of teenagers are jailed for a brutal rape.

The teenagers were given suspended jail terms last week after the judge decided they had shown "remorse".

The boys, aged 14, 16 and 17, sexually assaulted a girl, 14, in Hamburg in February while another girl filmed the attack. They then left the victim for dead in the freezing cold.

Prosecutors have already launched an appeal against the sentences.

The girl was hypothermic when she was found and had to be rushed to intensive care to save her life.
