WELLINGTON (AFP) - A Canadian tourist was raped in Fiji when three men armed with knives burst into the room where she was staying with her husband, the police said on Friday.

The attack on the couple at Rakiraki on the north of the main island Viti Levu took place on Monday night, a police spokesman said.

"The couple were in their room when they were robbed and the woman was allegedly raped," she told AFP via e-mail.

The spokesman said a police taskforce was immediately established and ordered to conduct a round-the-clock investigation, resulting in the arrest of two men on Wednesday. She said the couple had returned to Canada but the police investigation was continuing.
