Drug rape and murder of 16-year-old girl sparks widespread femicide protests in Argentina

The brutal rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl has sparked widespread femicide protests across Argentina.

Demonstrators from the Not One Less group expressed their outrage over the death of Lucia Perez in the seaside town of Mar del Plata, as Argentina confronts a scourge of drug-related violence.

The 16-year-old's violent death sparked particular outrage as the issue of security replaced inflation as the top concern for Argentines.

Perez was drugged with cocaine, impaled on a spike and suffered "inhumane sexual aggression" that triggered cardiac arrest, Prosecutor Maria Isabel Sanchez told reporters.

Police - who say a third man is being sought - found drugs, used condoms, sex toys and gun ammunition in the van.

Lucia's heartbroken father Guillermo Perez called for his daughter's killers to spend the rest of their lives behind bars.

He said: "We want life imprisonment, not just 10 or 15 years in prison and then they are able to walk free to do the same.

"My daughter was drugged, raped and impaled. Who can do something like this?"

     Following the attack, Lucia was dumped at a drugs rehab clinic where staff thought she was simply suffering from a cocaine overdose.

Her abductors had washed and dressed her before taking her to the clinic and it was only when clinic staff performed a more detailed examination that they discovered the truth.

Two men - identified by police as Matias Gabriel Farias, 23, and Juan Pablo Offidani, 41 - were arrested after police traced the van used to drop Lucia at the clinic.

     A woman is killed once every 30 hours in Argentina, according to Permanent Assembly for Human Rights, an Argentine non-profit group.

President Mauricio Macri's government has announced a new offensive against drug traffickers, sending federal troops to reinforce hot zones such as the port city of Rosario and Buenos Aires province, where Mar del Plata is located.

On Friday, police found a threatening note aimed at popular Maria Eugenia Vidal, the governor of Buenos Aires province and Macri ally, in a burned down courthouse.

The Not One Less movement called a one-hour pause from work and study between 1pm and 2pm. Many women in Argentina dressed in black to mark the occasion.

Local media reported Argentina's Senate would end a session early on Wednesday so members could participate in a demonstration scheduled for 5pm (8pm GMT) in Buenos Aires.
