Female US soldiers fearing rape die of dehydration instead: "'women in fear of getting up in the hours of darkness to go out to the port-a-lets or the latrines were not drinking liquids after 3 or 4 in the afternoon, and in 120 degree heat or warmer, because there was no air-conditioning at most of the facilities, they were dying from dehydration in their sleep.'"

Down through the years in the history of human conflict every atrocity imaginable has been suffered, but I daresay this particular horror might be an altogether new one.
