In the UK, A group of asylum-seeking “youths” from Afghanistan sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl in a swimming pool in Kent. The young miscreants were on a recreational outing from a nearby rural asylum center. Although the attackers are officially listed as quite young — in their mid to late teens — it is thought that they are actually quite a bit older, having misstated their ages in order to gain better treatment as underage asylum-seekers. The police are investigating.
In other news, a 15-year-old boy in the Gaza Strip who was reported to have been killed by the IDF — medical authorities in Gaza even certified his death — has turned up alive and well four days later, much to his mother’s surprise. It seems the rascally lad was part of a group of youngsters who had attempted to enter Egypt through Gaza’s notorious smuggling tunnels, and were arrested by Egyptian police.
Meanwhile, workers at Disneyland Paris are complaining that the high suicide rate among their number is due to poor treatment and bad working conditions at their place of employment.
