Four British school students alongside their teacher were reportedly sexually assaulted at gunpoint on Saturday, during a trip to Ghana.
According to reports, the students were attacked in their accommodation by a man armed with a rifle while volunteering in the West African nation.
It was reported that a Ghanaian security guard was shot and seriously injured after intervening in an attempt to stop the assault on Saturday.
The schoolgirls and their teacher, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were said to be recovering in a British hospital after arriving in the UK earlier on Monday.
The Foreign Office confirmed it was providing support to British nationals and was in contact with Ghanaian authorities following an “incident” in the Greater Accra area.
The school, which also cannot be named, is said to support a volunteering charity that supports disadvantaged Ghanaian children.
