    release protest

    There had been released protest in South Africa in the township where two girls aged two and three were raped and strangled.

    The underlined is what I hear from a clip as attached. But it doesn't make any grammatical sense. Can any native teacher help me to correct it according to the clip?

    Thanks!

    Re: release protest

    "renewed", not "released".

    "There have been renewed protests in ..."

    Note that "There have" sounds more like "There've".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
