>> The five men detained on suspicion of gang raping a woman during a bull running festival in Spain have been freed on bail. The assault took place in 2016, and the men joked about it afterwards on their WhatsApp group, which they called The Wolf Pack. In April, a court cleared them of rape and instead convicted them of the lesser crime of sexual abuse.

It followed concern over rising numbers of reported sex attacks in the country. Thousands took to the streets after the verdict was announced.
