A girl whose alleged gang rape has sparked violent protests in Chad has told FRANCE 24 she only wants her attackers to be brought to justice.

Police in Chad have arrested nine people, including five suspected rapists, who are also accused of posting photographs of the girl in tears on social media.

The affair has become a national scandal as protesters said the girl was kidnapped and gang raped by five young men from the families of senior army officers.

“They told me not to say anything or that they would do it again and put the pictures on social media,” the girl named as Zouhoura told FRANCE 24. “But when I got home I told my parents, I just had to”.
