Five Marines disciplined so far in nude photo scandal: report

Five U.S. Marines have been disciplined for their involvement in a nude photo sharing scandal that targeted women in the military and investigators have identified another 16 suspects who may have committed crimes, the Marine Times reported on Friday.

The Marine Corps was rattled when it was revealed in March that private Facebook group "Marines United" was used to surreptitiously distribute explicit images of women in the armed forces - often with obscene, misogynist commentary.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is investigating the matter. U.S. senators on Capitol Hill in March grilled the Navy and the Marine Corps' top leaders, demanding they aggressively combat online harassment.

The five Marines who were disciplined received non-judicial punishment and were not referred to a summary court-martial, the Marine Times reported, citing a military spokesman.

Fellow soldiers. It's like they wanted to encourage actual assaults. Horrible.
