Zuma sues over 'rape' cartoon


South Africa's ruling party leader Jacob Zuma is suing cartoonist Jonathan Shapiro over a graphic image showing the politician about to rape the "justice system".

It appeared at a time when Mr Zuma was facing a corruption trial, which was later dismissed on a technicality. He was acquitted of rape in 2006.

Peter Biles reports.
