Five teenagers have been arrested in Belgium over the alleged gang r.a.p.e of a 14-year-old girl who killed herself days after the attack.
Images of the assault in the city of Ghent were shared online, Belgian media reports.
The teenage victim, from Gavere, went to meet a friend in the Westerbegraafplaats cemetery in Ghent on May 15.
But four other people lay in wait and allegedly gang-r.a.p.e.d.her before sharing photos and videos online.
Four days later, the teenage victim killed herself.
A vigil is being held this evening which is being attended by the Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, reports Het Laatste Nieuws.
Her father told Flemish newspaper Het Nieuwsblad: “The images were the last straw for her… her entire world collapsed.”
Her family were later told about the gang r.a.p.e by one of the girl’s friends.
Police identified the five alleged offenders after analysing the social media images.
The suspects are three minors aged 14 and 15 and two adults aged 18 and 19.
Two of the minors are reportedly brothers.
The five alleged attackers, all believed to be from Ghent, have reportedly been arrested by police for rape, indecent assault and the taking and dissemination of photographs likely to constitute an attack on the integrity of a person.
Mayor of Gavere Denis Dierick said he knew the victim “very well’ and described her death as “pure horror” and “an inhuman tragedy”.
Some of the suspects are believed to have already been known to the police.
The prosecution have only confirmed that the five young people are suspected of “events that occurred shortly before the victim’s death”.
