Ex-UN official charged with lying to FBI about rape in Iraq


A former United Nations official accused of drugging and sexually assaulting several women has been charged with lying to the FBI, New York Times reported.

Karim Elkorany, who worked as a telecommunications specialist in Iraq, was arrested on Wednesday on two counts of making false statements to federal law enforcement agents.

Elkorany’s defense attorney, Dawn Cardi, denied the charges and said her client plans to vigorously fight them in Manhattan federal court.
