Iraqi refugee ‘raped 10-year-old boy at Austrian swimming pool’


A 10-year-old boy has been raped at a public swimming pool in Vienna, according to local media reports.

Local newspaper Kronen Zeitung described the assailant as a 20-year-old Iraqi refugee, who was arrested at the scene of the incident in late December.

It was reported that the child was taken to hospital for treatment over “severe” injuries.

Austrian police did not initially release details of the rape, which took place on 22 December at the Theresienbad pool, in order to protect the victim, according to Kronen Zeitung.
