Algeria - Former CIA Official under investigation for rape
- Story Highlights
- Source: Two Algerian woman say CIA officer raped them in Algeria
- Women say date-rape drugs were used in assaults
- Source: Man was relieved of job as CIA's Algeria station chief after allegations

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A former CIA station chief in Algeria is under investigation by the State and Justice departments after being accused of raping at least two women while he held the post, a source confirmed to CNN on Wednesday.
The women told investigators that they think date-rape drugs were used in the assaults, which are said to have occurred at the officer's official residence, according to the source.
The story was first reported by ABC News.
The allegations were made in the fall, when the unidentified officer was still serving as station chief. In October, soon after the allegations were made, the man returned to the United States for a previously scheduled trip and was ordered not to return to his post, the source said.
A senior U.S. official confirmed that the case is under investigation but refused to comment on the details.
