A British woman who was allegedly gang-raped by 12 Israeli teens in the party resort of Ayia Napa told police they assaulted her for an hour “one after the other”.

The group of 12, aged between 16 and 19, are alleged to have attacked the woman at around 12.30am on Wednesday at a hotel where she was staying in Cyprus.
According to Israeli channel, 13 News, the woman told police investigators: “One of them held me down and then I saw at least 12 faces … for an hour or so, one after the other.”
She said: “I was released at a certain point after I had fainted, and I ran out of the room, met friends and they took me half-naked to the clinic.
“I do remember that until about 1.00am, the friends I did not know raped me, some of them with a condom – and some of them without. They hurt my whole body.”
The victim is believed have meet up with the group of men around midnight, having spent time with some of them earlier on in her holiday.
According to Ynet News the woman told cops that the group of men pinned her down while laughing and taking videos on their phones.
