Child sailors raped in Australia: report

AFP-JIJI

Allegations that 220 child sailors at an Australian naval training base were raped or brutalized in the 1980s are so serious they will be raised in a paper to parliament, a news report said Monday.

An Australian inquiry into abuse in the military has received 2,400 complaints, but the head of the investigation said claims of shocking treatment at HMAS Leeuwin in Western Australia in the 1980s warranted a separate report, The Australian newspaper said.
