Iraqi refugee who raped 10-year-old boy at swimming pool in Austria jailed for six years


An Iraqi refugee who raped a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool in Austria has been jailed for a minimum of six years.

The 20-year-old man, who has not been named, had admitted rape and the aggravated sexual abuse of a minor at a court in Vienna.

His attack in December last year sparked a backlash against migrants in the country, which has since seen support for anti-immigration groups rise and implemented a controversial cap on refugee numbers.
