A British woman has been given a four-month suspended sentence after being found guilty of lying about being raped by a group of young Israelis in Cyprus. 

The 19-year-old was put on trial and convicted in December after recanting a claim that she had been raped by a group of 12 young men in a hotel room in July.

She said Cypriot police had made her falsely confess to lying about the incident – something police have denied.

 The woman’s supporters from Cyprus and a group of 50 women who travelled from Israel gathered outside the district court holding placards and chanted “We believe you,” and “No means no”.
