(Reuters) - Peru's government will present a bill to allow for chemical castration as a penalty for raping a minor, Cabinet members told reporters on Wednesday, following national outrage over the rape of a 3-year-old girl.

"We consider that this measure will be an additional penalty for those who commit rape," said Justice Minister Felix Chero.
