Girl raped by five men after Facebook affair

By Staff

Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police arrested a local man for raping a 20-year-old girl and letting four friends rape her after luring her through Facebook to a remote farm, a newspaper reported on Sunday.

The man had been in touch with the girl on Facebook for several months before telling her he was in love and wanted to marry her, Alyoum said.

“He then asked to see her…when she came he pushed her into his car and sped to a deserted farm where he and four other men raped her,” the Arabic language daily said in a report from the eastern province of Qatif.

It said members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice arrested the man and were searching for his friends.

“The car then overturned many times, resulting in the death of the driver…his friend suffered from serious injuries.”
