TOKYO (Reuters) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice voiced deep regret on Wednesday for a U.S. Marine's alleged rape of a 14-year-old Japanese girl, a case that has sparked outrage and official condemnation in Japan.
"We just regret deeply that this happened," Rice told reporters at the start of a one-day trip to Japan. "(It) is very hard to see something like this happen and it's especially hard because it involves a young girl."
