Another rape alleged in Okinawa
by UPI

NAHA, Japan -- A U.S. military serviceman is accused of raping a Filipino woman on the island of Okinawa, further straining U.S.-Japan relations, it was reported Thursday.

The allegations, which occurred before a curfew was imposed on the tens of thousands of U.S. troops, their families and civilians working for the military on Okinawa, extend a string of recent incidents involving U.S. troops stationed on the island, the BBC said

The first complaint involved the alleged rape of a 14-year-old school girl. Other incidents involved a drunken soldier found asleep on a couch in a house he had invaded and another soldier arrested for drunken driving.

The curfew is aimed at keeping U.S. personnel from drinking in off-base bars and getting into trouble. Last year, 46 U.S. military personnel were arrested on criminal charges in Okinawa, down more than 50 percent from five years earlier.
