A gang of young men have been arrested for kidnapping, raping and torturing a teen girl for over a month.
The 17-year-old victim was reportedly kidnapped and taken to a house in the town of Olad Ayad, in the Moroccan province of Beni Melal against her will and was tattoed with swastikas and verbally abused during her ordeal.
Buchra Abdou, the founder of the Tahadi Association for Equality and Citizenship, told local media the victim was raped in turn by the gang of 13 young men.
The gang reportedly burned the victim with cigarettes and inked insults and swastikas onto her skin with a homemade device.
The case was only reported to police after the victim was released by the suspects when she had been missing for a month.
Abdou said the case might have been reported sooner as rural villagers in Morocco are often scared of the police.
Eight suspects have been arrested while another five are being searched for, according to reports.
The Tahadi Association for Equality and Citizenship have said they will act as the civil defence for the victim.
Abdou said the association will also provide a psychologist for the victim as she suffered 'one of the most savages acts I have seen in my entire life'.
The investigation is ongoing and no motive has been provided for the crime.
