The unidentified British woman was taken to hospital in Tenerife, Spain, after experiencing severe abdominal pain. Doctors diagnosed the pain as a serious infection caused in the genitals by the Chinese three-keeled pond turtle.

According to Spanish news outlet El Pais, the doctors alerted the police fearing it was a case of sexual assault.



The woman, who was on a holiday in Spain, told the police she started feeling strange after partying with a group of friends on Thursday. However, she added, she did not remember what happened that night.

The 26-year-old decided to seek medical help but did not have any idea how the turtle ended up in her vagina. It was also unknown if the reptile died before or after entering the woman’s body, officials said.

“This incident did happen and the reports are true. The woman does not know how the reptile ended up where it did and we don’t either,” a police source said, adding, “The duty doctors inspected her and saw that her discomfort was due to the fact that the woman, who lives on the island, had a dead turtle inside her vagina which had caused a serious infection.”

According to local reports, the woman insisted she did not want authorities to investigate the incident further and police have halted their probe pending new information.

Researchers initially believed the creature was a loggerhead sea turtle because they were indigenous to the Canary Islands archipelago; however, it was confirmed later the reptile was indeed a Chinese pond turtle, which was sold around the world in pet stores and can grow up to 12 inches in length.

Facebook suspends thousands of apps in response to Cambridge Analytica row

Published

Facebook Inc said, it has suspended tens of thousands of apps on the social networking platform, as part of the company’s ongoing app developer investigation it began in March 2018 in response to the Cambridge Analytica row.

The suspended apps are associated with about 400 developers, Facebook said, adding that it is not necessarily an indication that these apps were posing a threat to users.

Earlier this year, the company agreed to pay a record-breaking $5 billion fine to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to resolve a government probe into its privacy practices.

The FTC privacy probe was triggered last year by allegations that Facebook violated a 2012 consent decree and inappropriately shared information of 87 million users with British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica.

Facebook has since agreed to boost safeguards on user data and has put curbs on the amount of information that third-party developers can request from platform users.

“… We’re making progress. We won’t catch everything, and some of what we do catch will be with help from others outside Facebook,” the company said in a blogpost.
