Fugitive Egypt gang rape suspects arrested

Lebanese security forces have arrested three fugitive suspects linked to the raping a woman at a luxury hotel in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, the authorities say.

Egypt’s public prosecutor last week said seven of the nine suspects had fled the country before the victim filed an official complaint in early August.

Two other suspects have left Lebanon, the government there said.

Egypt’s public prosecutor has ordered the arrest of the two suspects who were still in Egypt.

The prosecutor said they were working with international agencies to arrest the fugitive suspects.

The alleged rape involved nine men accused of drugging and raping a young woman at Fairmont Hotel in 2014.

The case was exposed online in July by an instagram account that outs alleged rapists.
