Four teenagers held over video showing sexual assault

Four boys, two aged 13, have been arrested in Tilburg in connection with an internet film which appears to show a 14-year-old girl being sexually assaulted.

‘The youths are all suspects,’ a police spokesman told news agency ANP. ‘They are suspected of involvement in the incident as well as making the film and spreading it on the internet.’ The two other boys are aged 15 and 16.
The story broke after television programme PowNews broadcast part of the film, resulting dozens of tip-offs about the identity of the boys and the girl. She was questioned by police on Tuesday, ANP said.
