Swedish detectives are investigating allegations that a woman was gang-raped in an attack that was broadcast on Facebook Live.
A witness who watched the incident online said she saw the victim being stripped and then sexually assaulted by several armed men and said the attack only ended several hours later when police arrived and switched off the webcam.
The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet said the assault took place in a flat in the town of Uppsala, north of Stockholm, on Saturday night and three people had been arrested.
