A court in Cyprus has given a British teenager a four-month suspended prison sentence after she was convicted of falsely accusing a group of Israeli tourists of gang rape.

The woman, 19, who was facing up to a year in jail, hugged members of her family at the end of a trial that caused protests in Britain, as well as calls for a boycott of tourism in Cyprus.

Lawyers for the woman say the case was littered with investigatory and legal mistakes and problems, including repeated refusals by the judge to consider whether the woman was raped.

The sentencing took place amid shouts from protesters outside the courtroom, with cries of "Cyprus justice, shame on you" heard in the court, despite police ordering journalists to close windows and blinds.
