The incidence of child rape in South Africa has doubled each year since 1999. The latest victims of the rape holocaust are babies - stolen, gang-raped, and often left for dead.

Why are men turning to babies for sex? Could it be the myth (believed by one in four South Africans) that sex with a virgin will cure AIDS?

Correspondent joins the hunt for Baby Tsepang's rapist after none of the six men originally arrested are identified by DNA tests, and follows the story of a hospital doctor dismissed after giving one shocked and torn baby girl an anti-AIDS drug.
