Norwegian teen claims rape by Swedes in Turkey

A 19-year-old Norwegian girl has reported that she was raped on Saturday night by four Swedish tourists in the holiday resort of Alanya in Turkey.

According to the girl's testimony she met the four Swedish teenagers in a bar on Saturday night.

The teenager told police that they had left the bar together after they had been drinking and returned to the hotel where the Swedes were staying.

According to Turkish media reports the hotel receptionist refused to allow the group to enter and they instead headed to the beach for a swim. When they later returned to the Swedes' hotel all five managed to sneak in.

In her police report the girl has said that by that time she was tired and all she wanted to do was sleep. But according to Turkish media reports the men then proceeded to rape her until the morning.

The teenager reported the alleged rape on Sunday morning.

The men, three of whom were aged 18 and one 19, were arrested by Turkish police on the street in Alanya later on Sunday.

According to Turkish police the four "took turns" to rape the woman.

The four meanwhile deny raping the 19-year-old and according to Swedish media reports the men were released by Turkish police after questioning on Monday evening.

The Norwegian foreign ministry has confirmed that it has been informed about the case.

The 20-year-old, who is a student at the Danish tour guide school in Lloret de Mar outside Barcelona, returned to the school in a confused state on Monday after being missing for nine hours. 
"Unfortunately I can confirm that one of our students has probably have been raped," Christiane Karlsen, the Managing Director of the Service & Co tour guide academy, told Ekstra Bladet. "But we know nothing about whether she has been stunned by drugs. She remembers very little and has had a blackout for several hours." 
She said that she had now banned the woman from drinking alcohol . 
"Of course we are all very sad on the Norwegian student's behalf," she told the paper. "And we have prohibited that she drink alcohol again while she's on the course." 
The school has encouraged the woman, who comes from Bergen, to report the rape to the Spanish police.
