Authorities in Ghana are investigating the sexual assault of four British girls and their teacher at gunpoint.
The Sixth Form students, aged between 16 and 17, were part of an organised trip by a school in southern England.
Reports say the four girls and their teacher were attacked on Saturday night at the hostel where they were staying in the Greater Accra region.
The attackers shot and wounded a security guard who attempted to stop them.
The students and their teacher have been flown back to the UK for medical attention and are responding to treatment.
The UK Foreign Office says around 90,000 Britons visit Ghana every year. Attacks like this on foreign nationals are not common in Ghana and the authorities are searching for the attackers.
