Six men have been arrested after a video of a mentally challenged girl being violently gang raped started circulating the internet on Sunday night. In it, several Moroccan men viciously strip the girl before raping her, all while bus riders cheer.
As Morocco World News reports, by the end of the video, a man is heard telling the attackers to “get away from her” despite not appearing to stop the assault.
Fouzia Assouli, head of the Moroccan Federation of the Democratic League of Women’s Rights was outraged by the video. “This is unbelievable! It looks like we’re living in the jungle now, because this is not sexual harassment, this is gang rape in a public space in front of everyone.”
She went on to tell the news site, “what does it mean to have a State exactly? Isn’t the government supposed to assure the security of its citizens?! What does it mean to have people witnessing such a crime without moving a finger.”
Al Arabiya news reports that six teenage suspects have been arrested in connection to the video.
