French Police say three men have been charged and jailed after a woman was allegedly lured on Facebook by one of them and gang-raped near the Eiffel Tower.
The Police say that three Algerian men were arrested earlier this week in a hotel in Paris. They were arrested under suspicion of taking part in the rape of a French woman in the Champ-de-Mars garden, close to the Tower.
