MAPLE RIDGE, British Columbia - Canada's federal police force has charged two teenage boys after a girl was gang raped at a party and photos of the incident were put on Facebook.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Peter Thiessen said Thursday that 18-year-old Colton Ashton McMorris has been charged with sexual assault and 19-year-old Dennis John Allen Warrington has been charged with production and distribution of child pornography in the Sept. 10, 2010, incident. The girl was 16 at the time.

The photos were widely circulated on the Internet after they were posted on the popular social networking site. A 16-year-old boy was charged last fall with production and distribution of child pornography in connection with the attack.

Thiessen read a statement Thursday from the victim who said she had to leave her school because of bullying following the ordeal.
