An American woman working for Houston-based KBR at a U.S. military base in Iraq was reportedly raped and beaten so badly by a base worker she had to be hospitalized, and while KBR officials declined to provide details, they confirmed Wednesday they are cooperating in a military criminal investigation.

U.S. military officials in Iraq confirmed the Nov. 30 attack, but few details were available, including the woman’s hometown, her age or her current medical condition.
