Reports of military sexual assault rise sharply, Pentagon figures show

Sexual assault complaints in the US military increased by an unprecedented 46% during the last year, according to the latest Pentagon figures.

There were 3,553 sexual assault complaints from October 2012 to June 2013, compared to 2,434 during the same period last year, according to statistics released on Thursday, at the start of a two-day congressional panel looking into the the problem.

It was unclear whether the upturn in official complaints could be attributed to a growing number of attacks, or whether more people felt able to report an attack.
