from Reuters

The number of sexual assaults reported across the U.S. military rose by around 50 percent in the 2013 fiscal year compared with 2012, the Pentagon said. The Pentagon said a review of preliminary data from the government's 2013 fiscal year, which began in October 2012, showed there were slightly more than 5,000 reports of sexual assault. The figure was first reported earlier by the Associated Press. The data compares with a previously released estimate of a 46 percent increase in sexual assaults in the military during the first nine months of the year. more
