The Guardia Civil are questioning a 39-year-old man in connection with the rape of a teenage Irish tourist.

Police said a man befriended the 16 year old in a bar in the resort of Playa Paraiso, on 3 June, where she was staying on holiday with her family.

He invited her back to an apartment where, she claimed, she was kept for several hours against her will and raped.

Afterwards, she reported the incident to the local Civil Guard station
