Nearly a year ago, a British mother and her daughter were raped on waste ground in Magaluf and the attackers have yet to be found and police are still hunting the sadistic killer of Yvonne O'Brien. The 55-year-old mother and her 22-year-old daughter from Berlington, were forced into a vehicle by two men just 50 metres from their Palmanova hotel on April 2, 2000. At knife point, the two women, who had arrived in Majorca on holiday nine days earlier, were driven to the scene of the crime. Police investigating the double rape, were looking into ten previous rapes in the area to establish if there were any connections. The Foreign Office in Britain says that the number of Britons murdered in foreign countries rose last year, but there were fewer robberies, rapes and abductions. Although in Majorca a number of British tourists were violently mugged, including a Scottish woman who while enjoying an evening stroll with her husband and another couple in Magaluf, ended up in hospital with head injuries after a bag-snatcher dragged her to the floor outside a hotel. There has also been, as the Bulletin reported yesterday, a marked rise in the number of supermarket and airport car park robberies, with many of the victims being either foreign residents or tourists.
