Johannesburg - Shares of MTN Group [JSE:MTN] gained 0.5% to R129.60, rising for the first time in three sessions, having been hammered after Turkish rival Turkcell filed a suit in a US court charging the mobile operator of using bribery and other corrupt practices to win a licence in Iran.

Shares of MTN fell more than 7% in the previous three sessions, and briefly hit their lowest level since September.
