JOURNALISM: British journalism student gang-raped in Calais.

The woman was reporting on illegal immigration from France to Britain and police believe the attack was carried by some of the men she intended to write about in the northern France port.

Detectives described the attack as being of a “particularly brutal nature”.

Some 100 would-be immigrants to Britain were rounded up by a force of French riot police and are being questioned as potential witnesses.

The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was described as “a London student who had travelled to France to highlight problems surrounding clandestine immigration.”

Well, I think she succeeded in that, at least. I hope she fully recovers.

UPDATE: Via InstaPundit in 2002, a story about refugees in Calais.
