Thirteen youths were indicted Wednesday on suspicion of gang-raping a 15-year-old girl over the course of three years, in a case that sent shock-waves across the country when it surfaced on Monday.

The suspects, 12 of whom are aged 17, and one aged 18, of north Tel Aviv and Ramat Hasharon, are believed to have struck, sodomized and abused the victim, now aged 18, and recorded the abuse on their cell-phone video cameras.

The 13 were charged with rape, abuse, assault, extortion and making threats.
