Police in Canada say they have made two arrests in the case of a 17-year-old who died after a photo of her allegedly being sexually assaulted was shared online.

The death of Rehtaeh Parsons, who was taken off life support after a suicide attempt in April, led to an outcry. Police initially concluded that there were no grounds to charge anyone.

Her mother said a boy took a photo of the alleged assault in 2011 and that her daughter was bullied after it went viral.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police say they arrested two males Thursday. Investigators say they are being questioned and no further information will be released at this time.
