A Sudanese court has sentenced a defendant to death after he was found guilty of raping a two-year-old girl to death last year.
It was revealed that the 30-year-old defendant had raped the toddler to death before dumping her body in a well in Eastern Khartoum.
The publicly infamous case has sparked protests by Sudanese activists, who called for maximum penalty for the defendant.
An earlier death sentence against the defendant was overturned by the Sudanese appeals court last June, before a retrial was initiated by the girl’s parents.
