Three men have been arrested in Sweden on suspicion of raping a woman in an assault that was broadcast live on Facebook, police have said.
Police swooped on an apartment in the city and detained three men born between 1992 and 1998.
Several viewers of the live broadcast reported the rape, according to the statement.
The broadcast is the latest graphic video to bring into focus the complex ethical and policy issues faced by Facebook Live and others.

Images of the suspects are being shared on social media, and hundreds of people are said to have seen the live video, Swedish Television News reported.
But the company’s push into live video has not been without disturbing occurrences.

He was taunting and laughing throughout the whole clip.”Over the past year, Facebook has made live, user-generated video a top priority.
Mr. Berggren, the prosecutor, could not confirm this because the video was not available, Swedish Television News reported.
