NICOSIA (AP) — A dozen Israelis have been detained after a 19-year-old British woman alleged that she was raped in the Cyprus resort town of Ayia Napa, a Cyprus police official said Wednesday.

The police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he’s not authorized to speak publicly about an ongoing investigation, said it’s still early in the investigation and it’s unclear how many suspects are implicated in the case.

The official couldn’t say how the suspects knew the woman or whether they had been staying in Ayia Napa together as a group.

State broadcaster RIK reported the alleged rape happened early Wednesday in the same hotel where the woman and the 12 suspects were staying separately.

It’s believed the suspects will appear in a Famagusta district court on Thursday for a custody hearing.

Ayia Napa is very popular with young tourists for its pristine beaches and vibrant night life on the island in the eastern Mediterranean Sea.

  1. Hey, Vgigdf… I think they fit in very well in Bugsy Segal Netanyahue crime family running your country..who has been raping the rights of Christian and Muslim Palestinians for years!

    Not to mention…the war crimes atrocities imposed on the only “OPEN AIR PRISON” in the world of Palestinian human beings in which 3000 civilians were bombed and mutilated about 4 years ago…and just recently 61 unarmed Palestinian..including a young medical student who was trying to help one of the people slaughtered by BiBi…for the Glory of Israel!

    Today, Palestinian homes are being destroyed and Palestinians are being thrown out of their homes because they are simply living to close to a fence put up by the Bugsy Segal mob boss called Bibi, but within their West bank territory!

    “Israeli destruction of Palestinian homes in West Bank, ‘not compatible’ with international humanitarian law”, UN says

    So, you can add crimes against humanity charges against Bibi and Israel ..to go along with the Apartheid Sates claims against Israel!

    But don;t worry, Greek Secret Society member Senator Robert Menendez,.the number one compensated member of the U.S senator by the Israeli Jewish lobbies.will immediately with TNH and controlled Western media.by your Sheldon Adelman..the Jewish casino magnet and owner of the corrupt Jerusalem press which lies like CNN everyday to the Jewish populace, like they do in the U.S …will declare Anti Semitism to oppress the criticism of the U.N.
