Riots have been occurring in the small town of Vradiyevka in southern Ukraine today (July 2, 2013), where a gang rape of a woman by police officers allegedly took place, the Euro News website reports.
Mobs stormed the town's police headquarters, after authorities refused to detain one of the policemen accused of rape.
