US contractor employee assaulted in Iraq; Congress seeking action

A woman who worked as a paramedic for a contractor in Iraq has testified she was raped in February by a soldier and co-worker.
The alleged assault on Dawn Leamon came a little more than a month after Congress began investigating similar assaults.
Leamon and a second former employee testified in a hearing called by Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida. Nelson wants to know whether the Bush administration is obeying a law that allows the U.S. Justice Department to prosecute sexual assaults involving contractors.
