Hundreds of Jamaicans, dressed in black, took to the streets across the island on Friday o protest the increase in violent acts against women and children.
The protest organised by the group, Woman Inc, had been prompted by the rape of four women and an eight year-old girl on Monday night by armed gunmen in the western parish of St James. They were also protesting the alleged rape of an 11 –year-old girl who had been pregnant by her grand uncle.
National Security Minister Peter Bunting led protestors in the western city of Montego Bay and some of the protestors have called on the authorities to implement the death penalty.
