Six St Lucia men charged with rape of British women "Six men have been charged with the rape of two British women on the Caribbean island of St Lucia, officials said.

The victims, aged 24 and 31, were attacked by a gang of masked men on an isolated stretch of Grande Anse beach, in the north-east of the country, on 10 May.

They were volunteering on a wildlife conservation project run by a British-based charity and St Lucia's ministry of agriculture when the late-night incident occurred.

The suspects, who are locals but yet to be named, are due in court later this month, police said in a statement."
