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.
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’.
At this point, the court papers say, each of the accused carried out serious sexual assaults on the child who was also bitten on the back and spat on.
All arrived in Sweden as unaccompanied minors seeking asylum and could be deported if convicted.
According to local media, the alleged perpetrators and the victim knew each other but the motive for the attack is not yet known.
