SPANISH POLICE INVESTIGATE SUSPECTED RAPE OF NORTHERN IRISH GIRL
A six year old girl from Northern Ireland was kidnapped from her room in the Barcelo Cala Vinya hotel in Palma Nova early Monday morning and raped at a dark corner of the hotel grounds near a swimming pool. A police investigation is underway on the Spanish island of Majorca and a 17 year old man, said to be British, has been questioned about the incident. He has since been released but his passport has been taken from him and police are awaiting the outcome of forensic tests. Reports from Majorca say that a man who spoke English raped the girl. Guests and staff at the hotel are being questioned.
