Woman resumes testimony on Iraq rape allegations
HOUSTON -- A woman is set to continue her testimony on the sexual assault she says she suffered in Iraq at the hands of co-workers for Houston-based military contractor KBR Inc.Monday will be the second day on the witness stand for Jamie Leigh Jones, who began her testimony Thursday in a federal court in Houston.
Jones says she was raped while working for KBR at Camp Hope in Baghdad in 2005. She's asking for unspecified damages from the Houston-based companies, which split in 2007.
She sued KBR, Houston-based former parent Halliburton Co. and a former KBR worker she alleges raped her. All deny Jones' allegations.
The Associated Press usually doesn't identify people alleging sexual assault, but Jones' face and name have been in media reports and on her own website.
