The five Israeli nationals accused of raping a British woman in Ayia Napa earlier this month were remanded in custody for an extra day for the second consecutive day on Wednesday after the Famagusta district court was unable to decide if they should remain in custody until their trial begins.

The suspects, aged between 19 and 20, were accused of rape on September 3, with their trial set to begin on October 5.

The decision as to whether they would remain detained until the beginning of their trial was originally set to be made on Monday.

However, the court has twice in two days failed to come to a decision on the matter, on both occasions extending the five’s detention for an extra day.
