SYDNEY - A 17-year-old boy was gang raped by 10 knife-wielding women in Papua New Guinea, a media report said Monday.
The gang of women attacked the schoolboy near Mendi town in Southern Highlands province during the weekend, police official Teddy Tei said.
“More than 10 women with kitchen knives attacked him and four women had sexual intercourse with him. The boy was taken to hospital for treatment,” he was quoted as saying by Australia’s AAP news agency.
Tei said he feared the women may have infected the young man with HIV/AIDS.
“HIV/AIDS is a problem in Papua New Guinea and I am concerned the women might be infected. I always warn the women to be careful at night but I am now warning the men too,” he said.
A UNICEF report says Papua New Guinea has one of the world’s highest rates of sexual violence.
