It’s the weekend, and so you don’t have to go searching we have rounded up the day’s top stories from Australia and around the world.
Li Jishun is a former Chinese primary school teacher who has been executed for molesting and raping 26 students, some as young as four, in the Western provence of Ginsu.
Li committed the abuses in the classroom, dormitories and surrounding forest between the years of 2011-2012.
The nation’s Supreme People’s court said that all of the victims were girls younger than 12 who were living in the village boarding school. The majority of the students had parents who had left the small country provence to find work.
The Supreme Court said that it was “his responsibility to educate and protect.”
“However, he took advantage of his status as teacher to repeatedly rape and molest the young girls, concealing his crimes and making it more difficult for his victims to resist and expose him,” the ruling said.
The execution was carried out on Thursday.
