A teenage girl was gang-raped before being thrown to her death off a building by at least 11 men in a gruesome attack, according to police.
Hamdi Mohamed Farah, 19, reportedly suffered a horrifying ordeal before she was thrown off the sixth-floor of a building.
The student was attacked in Mogadishu, Somalia and 11 people have been arrested in connection with the incident, say police.
A statement released by cops said: "We have arrested 11 people over the recent rape case in Wabari neighbourhood in Mogadishu and efforts to track and identify other suspects are ongoing".
The sickening attack took place last Friday on September 11.
Hamdi was due to enrol in college next year and had completed high school, reports All Africa.
Since the alleged murder, citizens have been organising protests demanding an end to violence against women in the nation, reports The Sun.
The incident has caught the attention of influential people in Somalia who have publicly condemned the crime and are calling for justice.
Mustaf Sheikh Ali Duhulow, an MP said: "The rape and killing of Hamdi sent shockwaves across Somalia, and no stone will be left unturned to ensure justice is served".
Another MP calling for justice is Hassan Moalim, he said: "I want to tell the Somali people and my constituents that I will not rest until the late Hamdi gets the justice she deserves".
On Twitter, Abdirahman Abdishakur –Leader of Wadajir Party – said: "I condemn the brutal rape & murder of Hamdi Mohamed Farah, may Allah have mercy on her soul. Rape & sexual offences against women are acts that have recently become rampant in our society.
"We have to collectively confront this kind of crime and reject it with one voice."
He added:"Investigative agencies should swiftly bring to book the perpetrators of this crime so they could face the full force of the law."
