After a firestorm of controversy erupted surrounding the alleged rape of a Japanese woman by U.S. Marines late last year, four marines in question will now be court martialed next month for the alleged attack.
The U.S. military says it will court-martial four U.S. Marines in Japan for the alleged rape of a Japanese woman.
Master Gunnery Sgt. John Cordero of the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station in Iwakuni in southern Japan said Thursday that the courts-martial are to be held beginning next month.
The four Marines, accused of an attack on a 19-year-old woman in October, were charged by the military in December.
