New measures to tackle US military sex abuse

Both Republicans and Democrats back legislation that aims to address rampant sexual abuse.

    A US army officer who led a sexual assault prevention office has lost his job as police investigate allegations he harassed his former wife.

    It is the latest in a series of sexual abuse allegations against military staff.

    In a rare show of unity, both the Republicans and the Democrats have backed legislation that aims at making sexual abuse in the military a thing of the past.
