Dead boy was raped
A coroner yesterday concluded that a 6-year-old boy, whose body in an abandoned house in Komotini, northern Greece, was sexually assaulted before he was strangled to death.
The boy, who was deaf and whose family lives at a Roma camp near the site where he was found, was reported missing on Sunday. His body was discovered on Monday, with abrasions and bruises around the face and neck.
A 15-year-old fellow Roma boy, who is also deaf, has been arrested after allegedly confessing to the crime.
Police said the teenager had been accused of attempted rape of a minor in the past.
