Two boys who were tortured, raped and buried alive in a Swedish cemetery have said they looked like they had "showered in blood" after escaping the horrific ordeal.
The pair told police they had been abducted, kicked, punched, burned, stabbed and ordered to strip naked in a series of horrifying crimes.
They were forced to dig their own grave on the night on August 22 in Solna, just north of the capital city Stockholm.
They say their tormenters, aged 18 and 21, approached them on a footpath near the cemetery and tried to sell them drugs. After refusing the offer, they were allegedly threatened with a knife and dragged into a nearby forest where they were beaten and stripped naked.
They said during the attack the men said they knew where they lives and threatened their families.
To stop them from raising the alarm, their mobile phones were taken and thrown into the woods. The evil pair are said to have given the boys a shovel for them to dig their own graves.
They were continuously beaten by the men as this happened.
One of the boys told police it was "difficult to get a grip on how many" punches and kicks they received from their attackers.

They said they were prevented from screaming when they were gagged with their own socks and their belts were used to bind hands together.
The shocking ordeal continued for several hours as they were tortured and burnt with cigarette lighters.
One of the boys claimed he was raped during the sickening attack.
One said: "I just tried to be as cooperative as possible and protect my head. I lay there trembling because it is so cold, almost the majority of the night."

Fearing they would be killed, the two boys managed to escape.
One of them said: "It was either running and dying or not running and dying."
They ran into a passer-by who called the police, who found them naked and covered with injuries.
They arrested the two men who have since been charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault, rape and aggravated robbery.
Local media reported that one of the suspects was wearing items belonging to the victims when police made the arrest.
The men have denied the charges.
