Bangladesh introduced the death penalty for rape on Monday after days of protests sparked by a string of sexual assaults, the government said. The AFP reports that demonstrations have broken out across the country after harrowing footage of a group of men stripping and attacking a woman went viral on social media. The clip sparked outrage in the South Asian country, where activists say only a tiny percentage of sexual assault victims see justice. Justice minister Anisul Huq told AFP the law would be put into effect by the president on Tuesday.
