Brit Womans Refugee Gang Rape

The brutal gang rape of a British woman by five Afghan refugees has sparked a massive protest against illegal immigrants in a Serbian spa town.

The 38-year-old woman - who bravely managed to film the attack on her mobile phone - was repeatedly raped after befriending a group of Afghan men in a park in Banja Koviljaca.

Despite handing the video footage to police, only one alleged attacker - identified by police only as Abdurashid D., 25 - has been arrested.

Now local mothers have told police they are boycotting local schools from next week (nov 7) unless they clear out a local refugee centre containing more than 2,500 illegal immigrants which was built to hold just 120.

"These people are always hanging around the parks and streets during the day causing trouble," said one mum.

"They have no respect for us, no respect for women and we want them gone because they have no right to be here.

"My daughter isn't going to school again while four refugee rapists are still on the streets," she added.

The British victim had travelled to Serbia after striking up a Facebook friendship with a man who told her he lived in a town called Lozinca.

When she couldn't find him, the woman flew on to the spa resort Banja Koviljaca where she began chatting to three Afghan men in a local park.

But when they invited her for a drink at a local hotel, they met up with two other men and she was dragged behind the building and raped repeatedly.

Her harrowing phone video footage of the attack - which was handed to the police - is said by local media to show the faces of three of her attackers clearly.

Police said that Abdurashid D. has admitted sex with the woman, but claims it was consensual, although he was unable to explain medical evidence showing injuries suffered by the woman.

The rape occurred last week (27 Oct), but police only revealed the details after the woman had returned to the UK on Monday.

The case has shocked locals in the region, which is the most popular spa resort in the country and regarded as one of the mainstays of Serbia's tourism business.
