A court in the western Kenya town of Busia has sentenced three men to 15 years in jail for gang raping a 16-year-old girl and dumping her into a pit latrine, a civil rights group said Monday.

The three are alleged to be part of a group of six men who gang-raped the girl and had been given the punishment of cutting grass by police before an international outcry led to the harsher punishment by the courts.
