Two Irishmen have been arrested on suspicion of raping a British tourist in a hotel in Magaluf.
The Briton, who has not been named, told police she had been sexually assaulted by the two men in a hotel room in Calvia by Magaluf in the early hours of Wednesday.
The Irishmen had reportedly fled the hotel before they were arrested by police officers at the airport as they tried to return to Dublin.

The alleged victim was taken by officers to Son Espases Hospital by the policeman where she underwent an examination of her injuries. The Guardia Civil confirmed that the woman had been raped.

Officers specialised in dealing with sex crimes identified the two Irishmen and discovered that they were no longer in the hotel where the alleged rape had taken place.
They had left the hotel and tried to board a flight to Dublin at the Palma Mallorca airport before officers found them and arrested them.
The Guardia Civil said in a statement: ‘The officers then went to the Palma airport to locate the two individuals, and after finding them in the boarding area waiting for the flight they were arrested as they were about to head back to Dublin.’
The pair have now been brought before a court which confirmed they are to be held in investigative custody.
The woman involved has not been named and is currently being looked after by a specialist team from the Spanish Civil Guard who collected her from the hospital.
Police said that they are working with her to make sure the complaint is filed and would then be taking her to Palma airport so that she could head back to her family in the UK.

It comes just days after a British tourist was arrested at the Palma Mallorca airport after allegedly raping his girlfriend at their hotel on the Spanish island.
The 38-year-old was held as he tried to fly home after his 24-year-old partner went to police to say he had forced himself on her in the bathroom of their hotel room.
The couple are said to have been staying at a three-star hotel near the resort of Magaluf when the incident allegedly occured.
Meanwhile in May, a British tourist was arrested on suspicion of raping a female friend of his son’s at a hotel in Magaluf.
The holidaymaker was also held at Palma Airport after allegedly packing his bags and trying to leave the island in a hurry hours later.
The woman, also believed to be British, told detectives she was raped after falling asleep in her friend’s room which had an internal door leading into his dad’s room.
The older man is said to have surprised her in the middle of the night after entering the room while his son was out partying.
The alleged rape victim, who is understood to be aged around 20, fled the unnamed hotel and raised the alarm at a Civil Guard office near to the Punta Ballena party strip in Magaluf according to local reports.
