In April, five men were arrested on suspicion of gang raping a girl on-board a special, high school kids-only pleasure cruise in Sweden. The men were accused of gang-raping an unidentified woman, and face charges of aggravated rape. A mistake by Sweden’s largest newspaper has revealed the men to be migrants.
Four men are facing trial this month accused of raping a woman on a student ferry trip between Stockholm and Finland, one in a series of alleged incidents on the so-called Baltic booze cruises.

The woman told police she was raped on a party cruise which saw around 1,700 students from Sweden travelling across the Baltic sea at the end of March.
Eight people have in total featured in the investigation, but four have since been released.
On Thursday four 19-year-old men were charged. According to the prosecutor no one else is believed to have been involved in the alleged aggravated rape.
“The suspicions against the others are completely dropped,” Angelic Runesson told the Dagens Nyheter newspaper.
