Twelve Israeli tourists have been detained in Cyprus after a 19-year-old British woman alleged she had been raped in the resort town of Ayia Napa. 

A police source said it is still early in the investigation and it is unclear how many of the suspects are implicated in the case. 

The official could not say how the suspects knew the woman or whether they had been staying in Ayia Napa as a group.
