UK: 4 Afghan Teens Arrested in Connection With Rape of Schoolgirl

Four teenage Afghan boys have been arrested in the UK in connection with the alleged rape of a schoolgirl.

One, a 15-year-old, was arrested on suspicion of rape, while the other three — aged 13, 15 and 16 — were arrested on suspicion of facilitating the alleged attack on the girl, aged 15.

The incident took place at a school in the town of Dover on Feb. 6. Sources told The Times that three of the boys held the victim down and acted as lookouts while the fourth raped her. The boys, who all arrived in the UK as refugees last year, have been released on bail.

They all attended the school and are under the care of social services, having arrived in the UK as unaccompanied minors seeking asylum.

Their stated ages given to authorities on arrival were not disputed by the Home Office or local council.
