U.S. Marines Attack Colombian Woman

Four U.S. Marines have been charged with attacking a woman. The Marines, stationed at the U.S. embassy in Bogota, Columbia, took the woman to a U.S. embassy garage, where one of the Marines demanded she have sex with him. When she refused, the Marines beat her. The woman attempted to gain compensation for the attack from the embassy and was offered $150 by a U.S. official to not file suit.
