Swazi king chooses wife number 13
BBC



King Mswati has 24 children

Swaziland's King Mswati III has chosen a 17-year-old girl to be his 13th wife at a ceremony in which bare-breasted virgins perform a special dance.

His last bride - a teenage beauty queen who dropped out of school to become a princess - was chosen four months ago.

King Mswati's latest fiancee has travelled to South Africa to undergo an HIV test, a princess told the BBC.

He has been criticised for having so many wives in a country with one of the world's highest rates of HIV infection.
