Fort Bragg (North Carolina): A US Army brigadier general has been charged with forcible sodomy and other offences after being sent home from Afghanistan.

The Fayetteville Observer newspaper reported today that Brig Gen Jeffrey A Sinclair faces possible courts-martial on charges that include forced sex, possessing pornography and alcohol while deployed, engaging in inappropriate relationships and misusing a government travel charge card.

Sinclair was sent back to the US this spring while serving as deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne Division headquarters in Afghanistan.
