Seventeen British tourists were arrested on the island of Crete on Sunday for insulting the Catholic Church after they paraded themselves dressed "in nun attire and naughty lingerie", police said.
The Britons were arrested in the coastal town of Malia, a popular resort for young travellers with a long tradition of drunken tourist antics.
They will be taken to a prosecutor to be officially charged and may be fined but are unlikely to be jailed for the misdemeanour offence, a police source said.
