Boy killed as Chicherit takes win

France's Chicherit battles on in his BMW
Guerlain Chicherit won the 14th stage of the Dakar Rally but his maiden win was overshadowed by the death of a child for the second day running.

The 12-year-old boy was reportedly hit by a support lorry. A 10-year-old boy was hit by a competing car on Friday.

South Africa's Alfie Cox was second and America's Marc Miller was third.

Luc Alphand retained the overall lead and is nearly 18 minutes ahead of South Africa's Giniel de Villiers with one stage remaining.

In the bike category, France's David Fretigne took the stage, with Spain's Marc Coma in second place, 33 seconds behind.

Coma retained the overall lead and is comfortably ahead of France's Cyril Despres, who is 1:13:29 back.

Saturday's fatal accident occurred on a road reserved for support vehicles, organisers said in a statement.

Police were investigating the accident, which occurred between Tambacounda and Dakar.

The race ends on Sunday with a 19m (31km) run to Lac Rose, a pink lake east of Dakar.
