Crete teenager alleges gang rape

A forensic expert is due to examine a teenage girl who claims to have been the victim of rape by more than a dozen men in Iraklio, Crete.

The 16-year-old girl, who admitted to being a drug addict, told police that on Saturday a 26-year-old former boyfriend injected her with heroin and raped her, adding that he then drove her to different houses around Iraklio, where he continued to supply her with drugs and allowed up to more than a dozen men to sexually abuse her.

The 26-year-old is being held for questioning, though no formal charges have been filed against him.
