Two men have been jailed for 15 years for raping a boy, 14, in the toilets of a Manchester department store.
Alex Wilson-Fletcher, 42, of Oldham Street, Manchester; and Abdelkader El-Janabi, 55, of Artillery Court, Ardwick; attacked the teenager in June.
The men approached the boy in the Arndale Centre before leading him to the Debenhams store on Market Street.
Manchester Crown Court heard El-Janabi was a former intelligence officer in Saddam Hussein's Iraqi regime.
A "sustained attack" took place on the boy after he was marched to the toilets of the store on a busy Saturday afternoon, the jury was told.
El-Janabi and Wilson-Fletcher, a law firm worker, were tracked down after images from CCTV were circulated around the UK by police.
Judge Michael Leeming QC, sentencing, told them: "In all probability, what you did to him in his formative years will stay with him.
"Neither of you thought of that at the time. You were more concerned with your own sexual gratification."
