Five migrants among seven young men who ‘laughed, danced and sang in Arabic as they gang raped unconscious girl of 17’

It is believed the attack happened after the girl passed out after drinking at a party.

One of the rapists later told police: “She can’t complain. Women must obey men.”

The shocking assault happened in November but was only discovered this week by a teacher at a school in Ostend, Belgium.

A police probe was launched after a 14-year-old boy at the Ostend Technical Institute bragged about a photo of himself dressed in military fatigues and holding a sub-machine gun.

Cops later discovered the shocking video on his phone — believed to have been filmed by the boy — of the suspects raping the victim before dancing around her, the country’s Het Laatste Nieuws site reported.

Police yesterday revealed that seven males aged between 14 and 25 were involved in the attack, including five Iraqis. Two had just arrived in the country and were in the process of seeking asylum when the gang rape took place. Two of the attackers were Belgian nationals.

The video shows them pull down the victim’s trousers, sexually assault her and rape her.

It was revealed she later took a taxi home and did not tell police. When she eventually spoke to cops this week she could not remember what happened.

It was reported that during police interrogations only the eldest suspect denied rape, while the others admitted having sex with the girl and even suggested gang rape was normal in other parts of the world. One claimed the girl had consented, but footage showed she was unconscious.

Four men have been put in jail over the attack while the three minors are in a youth detention centre, according to reports in the country.

Local mayor Johan Vande Lanotte said yesterday: “It’s obvious some newcomers have a cultural problem about relations between men and women.

“We must stay alert and explain our basic values to them and what they cannot do.”

Meanwhile Theo Francken, Belgium’s minister for asylum and immigration, said: “Rapists won’t be given asylum. They will be sent back to Iraq if they are found guilty.”
