Incidents of sexual violence towards young women seem to be escalating across the world. Pray for the safety and protection of all women, Christian or not.
A teenage Malaysian girl is reported to have been gang-raped by up to 38 men in an abandoned hut used as a drug haunt.
According to reports, the alleged assault in the northern state of Kelantan, Malaysia, took place on 20 May, after the 15-year-old met a 17-year-old friend, who may have been an accomplice to the alleged rapists.
The victim was understood to have been lured to the abandoned hut and raped repeatedly over the course of a few hours. At least 13 people were arrested, including a father and his two sons, over the alleged rape.
In a report from the New Straits Times, some of the alleged attackers had been tested positively for amphetamine, which is a stimulant drug.
The New Straits Times stated that almost 3000 rapes were reported to the police in Asia in 2012, of which 52 per cent involved girls aged 16 and below, according to police statistics.
