It is being reported by AWE24.com that a tourist woman was raped in Aruba. The woman went to the hospital accompanied by police. Could this be more bad PR for Aruba? An island that has still yet to recover from the disappearance and the handing of the case of Natalee Holloway. If true, this will be another situation not good for tourism.
