A CIA officer in Africa is under investigation for two separate instances in which he was accused of rape, according to court documents and a government official. Court papers filed in federal court in Washington by a State Department investigator show two Algerian women came forward separately to say they had been sexually assaulted by the man while at his home in Algiers, where he was stationed. The court documents do not identify him as a CIA employee, but a congressional official familiar with the case said Wednesday he worked for the agency in Algiers until he was recalled in the wake of the investigation. The case was first reported by ABC News.
