German army unit pulled from Congo mission over sex scandal

`A German army unit due to police elections next month in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been barred from the mission because of a scandal over bizarre sexual practices in its ranks, a defense ministry spokesman said Thursday. [..]

In one incident reported in the German press, members of the unit allegedly placed fruit in the backside of one soldier and pounded it with a paddle. Initial reports said the soldier had willingly participated in the act.

The military described the incident as “reprehensible” and “not to be tolerated”.’

    And in an unrelated story, USA has just asked Germany to send forces to run the prisons in Iraq…

    That’s the way to beat terrorism, you know. Pound vegetables into Iraqi arseholes. Can’t go wrong with that strategy. 🙂
