FCO calls on trade to stop Greece rapes

THE number of British holidaymakers raped in Greece
has rocketed, prompting the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to appeal to
operators for closer co-operation.

Attacks have doubled in four years, with
34 reported cases of rape against UK nationals last year. Worryingly, the FCO
also revealed that serious violent crimes against Brits had almost trebled
since 1998.

Club 18-30, which achieved
high-profile coverage following the infamous sun, sea and sex Club Reps TV show
based in Faliraki, Rhodes, said it already liaised closely with the FCO, but
Greece had particular problems.
