Cyprus Detains 12 Israelis after UK Woman Alleges Rape

Wednesday, 17 July 2019 12:37 PM

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — A Cyprus police official says 12 Israelis have been detained after a 19-year-old British woman alleged that she was raped in the resort town of Ayia Napa.

The police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he's not authorized to speak publicly about an ongoing investigation, said Tuesday that it's still very early in the investigation and it's unclear how many of the 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.

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

Ayia Napa is very popular with younger tourists for its pristine beaches and vibrant night life.
