Five tourists were arrested in Benidorm for the alleged group rape of a 20-year-old Norwegian woman after meeting each other via social media.
The sexual assault allegedly took place in a holiday home at the resort and the suspects were traced by their profiles and photos.
The five men all have French nationality. Four of them are 19 years old, the fifth is 18.
The Civil Guard arrested the suspects on Tuesday morning. They had been on vacation in Benidorm and would fly home today. They are being held by the Spanish police and are expected to appear in court on Thursday.
The police say that the presence of a French officer in Benidorm at a police fair in the summer played a crucial role in catching the alleged attackers.

The wife and her boyfriend, also from Norway, had gone to a local health center in the nearby town of L & Alfàs del Pi to report an alleged case of sexual abuse and sexual abuse.
They could give complete descriptions and the first two were arrested at 4 am and the other three half an hour later.
The women told the police that she and her friend had contacted the men through a social network and that they agreed to meet them in Benidorm.
Later they all went together to the holiday home where the French teenagers were staying, although at one point in the night one of the young Norwegian women left the house and the other left alone with the five men.
Later there was the alleged group sexual assault and the agents are now trying to make it clear whether the other girl, the one who left, could leave the house voluntarily or not.
In their complaint, the two women provided data and photos of the profiles of the social networks of the five alleged suspects.
The 20-year-old Norwegian woman and her boyfriend were both taken to Villajoyosa Hospital for a more complete medical examination.
"The investigation is still open to determine the degree of participation of each of the five men and wait for them to be made available to the Benidorm courthouse on Thursday," a police spokesman said.
The five men all deny sexual abuse.
