New Briefs: World War II Rapes

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) - A group of Indonesian women who say they were raped by

Japanese troops during world war II are preparing to file a lawsuit against the Japanese

government, a human rights group said.

The women were meeting with lawyers over the weekend, the Indonesian Legal Aid Foundation

said Saturday.

A spokesman for the human rights group, Rita Serena Kalibonso, said the women claimed

they had been raped repeatedly by members of the Japanese imperial army during the

Japanese occupation of Indonesia in 1942.
