Five Afghan teenagers have been arrested after a boy was gang-raped at knifepoint in a forest in Sweden, it has emerged.
The victim, who is under 15, was filmed during the attack, which happened in woodland in Uppsala, south east Sweden.
He was beaten and dragged out to the forest at knifepoint before being subjected to an ordeal lasting more than an hour, prosecutors say.
One of the attackers filmed parts of the assault, overnight on October 24 and 25, and posted the footage on social media, it is claimed.
The child, also from Afghanistan, went to police before five suspects were detained on child rape charges, it has been reported in Sweden.
All five have reportedly denied the accusations with one saying he was not present. Two others say they do not remember what they were doing while the final pair made ‘some concessions’.
