CAPE TOWN - South African police have arrested a second suspect in the gang rape and murder of a teenager that shocked a country hardened to some of the world's highest levels of sexual violence.

The 17-year-old victim was sliced open from her stomach to her genitals and dumped on a building site in the town of Bredasdorp, 130 kilometers (80 miles) east of Cape Town at the weekend.

"Our investigations are continuing and more arrests are imminent," police spokesman Frederick van Wyk said.

The victim identified one of her attackers, a 22-year-old man, before she died. He and the 21-year-old second suspect, who was arrested on Wednesday night, are expected to appear in court shortly on charges of rape and murder.
