The prosecutor in Wu-chuan, Guangdong province, has lodged a protest against the local court's sentences for seven men convicted of a gang-rape in May 2013 as wrongfully lenient.

The seven men, who were minors at the time, were convicted of gang-raping a then-14-year-old girl in Wuchuan. Five other men were also convicted of raping the girl, but their sentences are not being challenged.

The 12 men stopped the motorcycle she was riding with two other men, beat the girl and the men badly, smashed the motorcycle and then kidnapped the girl, taking her to three different locations to rape her.
