Seven villagers in Fiji have been charged with the rape of a 12-year-old girl last week.

The men are expected to appear in the Labasa Magistrates Court tomorrow.

Police spokesman, Atunaisa Sokomuri, said they are looking to question five others who are also believed to be involved in the incident.

The victim, from Bua, went to spend Christmas at a relative's house in Dreketi when the alleged incident took place.

It is believed all the suspects were under the influence of liquor when the incident took place.
