Daisy Coleman supporters rally as Missouri rape case reopens
The Facebook-organised "Justice for Daisy" rally comes a day after a special prosecutor was named in Ms Coleman's case
Several hundred people have rallied outside a court in the US state of Missouri to demand justice for a teenage alleged rape victim.
The internet-organised protest in Maryville backed Daisy Coleman, 14, who says she was assaulted and left on her family's porch in freezing weather.
A special prosecutor was named on Monday after a newspaper investigation into why charges were dropped.
Ms Coleman's mother has said the family has had to move because of harassment.
The girl alleges that a 17-year-old boy raped her in January last year. Charges against him were dropped two months later.
The case has drawn comparisons to one in Steubenville, Ohio, where two 17-year-old football players were convicted of raping a West Virginia girl after an alcohol-fuelled party in 2012.
It was furiously debated online and led to allegations of a cover-up to protect the city's celebrated high school football team.
