    Five more men have been charged in the string of sexual assaults on a 13-year-old runaway girl in Austin.

    The five are each charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. They're in Travis County Jail with bonds set at $30,000 each.

    That brings to eight the number of men charged in the June 29 attacks that authorities say may have involved as many as 10 men.

    Authorities say some of those men involved in the gang assault filmed the attacks at an Austin apartment with their cellphone cameras.

    Austin police records show the girl has run away from the Settlement Home for Children, a halfway house that also provides foster care.
