SOMALIA-MEDIA-ARREST-RIGHTS-RAPE

A Somali woman, who was sentenced to a year in jail after she told a reporter she was raped by security forces, holds her baby at the court house in Mogadishu on March 3, 2013. A Somali appeals court dropped the charges against the woman but said the journalist will remain in jail for six months. Last month the woman and journalist Abdiaziz Abdinuur, 25, were found guilty of offending state institutions and sentenced to a year in jail. Abdinuur -- who was detained on January 10 while researching sexual violence in Somalia, but did not air or print any report after interviewing the woman -- was also found guilty of 'making a false interview, and entering the house of a woman whose husband was not present.'
