She is due to appear in court on Monday.

The other seven were released on Sunday after the woman allegedly changed her story.

It is believed the woman had had a holiday fling with one of the suspects before the allegations were made.

Yiannis Habaris, who represents two of the Israelis, said investigators questioning the teenager had concluded that her allegations "didn't stand to reason".

Seven Israeli teenagers were freed from custody in Cyprus on Sunday after a British teen admitted her report of being raped by a dozen people was untrue, defense lawyers and a Cypriot official said.

Jubilant relatives were at the police station in Paralimni yesterday to greet the seven teenagers on their release. Some of the youths carried suitcases and got into waiting cars that drove them straight to the airport.

He said the accuser "regretted what she said", adding: 'Most likely she will be referred to court tomorrow'. "As I have argued throughout the process, there was no rape in Cyprus", he told Jerusalem Post.

The Israeli media commended the Cypriot police for having conducted a professional and thorough investigation into the case. She said Israeli media outlets that were swarming the boys when they arrived at Ben Gurion "forgot to ask the serious questions".

Earlier, a police source said the British teenager had been arrested on "charges of giving a false statement over an imaginary offence". "I told them what had happened and they immediately told me to file a complaint with police".
