Three Somali men who gang-raped a white 16-year-old girl in the bathroom of a hotel where they went to celebrate Eid have been jailed for 30 years.
Muhyadeen Osman, Bilal Ahmed and Mowled Yussuf, all now 20, were just teenagers when they attacked the girl at the Victoria Park Hotel in Manchester, regarding her as ‘easy prey’, the court heard.
The group, then all aged 17, had spent the previous night in the hotel with a number of other men as part of Eid celebrations when one of their friends, who had met the girl on BlackBerry Messenger, brought her round saying she should ‘meet his boys.’

In the run up to the assault the group moved from room to room looking for unlocked doors to hide from a porter.
They eventually got into a bedroom where Yussuf was first to force the girl to perform a sex act on him in the bathroom.
Despite her repeatedly telling the group that she didn’t want to have intercourse, she was forced to perform a sex act on Ahmed before he raped her.
Osman then joined in after he had been ‘hanging around’ outside the door. He then moved her to the bed and raped her himself.
