Libyan Soldiers Sent Packing After Sex Accusations

More than 300 Libyan soldiers training at Bassingbourn Barracks in Cambridgeshire are to be sent back to their home country, after a series of sex attacks in Cambridge.

According to reports, members of the Libyan armed forces have been at Bassingbourn since July as part of the UK's pledge to support the Libyan Government.

They had been due to return at the end of the month, but their stay has been cut short after five soldiers were accused of sex attacks.

Libyan cadets Ibrahim Naji El Maarfi, 20, and Mohammed Abdalsalam, 27, appeared at Cambridge Magistrates' Court last week and admitted two counts of sexual assault and are awaiting sentencing.

Khaled El Azibi, 18, has been charged with three counts of sexual assault linked to the same incident, but has not yet entered a plea.

Moktar Ali Saad Mahmoud, 33, and Ibrahim Abogutila, 22, were last night charged with rape.

Cambridgeshire police say the charges relate to assaults on a man in Cambridge on Sunday.
They appeared before Magistrates' today and were remanded into custody while their case was adjourned to Cambridge Crown Court next week.
