Unsealed FBI documents allege that Martin Luther King was present while a friend raped a woman.

The claims were unearthed by the civil rights leader's biographer David Garrow, who won a Pulitzer prize for his 1987 book Bearing the Cross.

The unsealed documents confirm the extent of government surveillance against Dr King, with recording devices concealed in hotel rooms he stayed in.

According to The Sunday Times, FBI surveillance documents also make a number of claims about Dr King's sexual behaviour, with one incident allegedly caught on tape at a hotel in Washington DC.

Looked on and laughed

FBI reports allege that Baptist pastor Logan Kearse invited several women back to his room with Dr King, where the pair were recorded discussing sex acts with the women.

An FBI document claims: “When one of the women protested that she did not approve, [Mr Kearse] immediately and forcibly raped her.”

It adds that Dr King "looked on, laughed and offered advice" during the ordeal.

Dr King, a Baptist minister who had a daughter with wife Coretta Scott King, was reportedly monitored engaging in sex acts with around 40 women, with the files claiming he was surveilled participating "in acts of degeneracy... [at] sex orgy."

On one occasion, the documents claim, Dr King coerced a woman into a sex act by claiming it "helps your soul."

Documents also suggest that Dr King may have secretly fathered a daughter outside marriage.

FBI threatened to expose 'adulterous acts'

FBI officials attempted to leverage the intelligence about Dr King's personal life, sending him an anonymous letter threatening to expose "your adulterous acts, your sexual orgies."

The letter suggested Dr King should commit suicide “before your filthy, abnormal, fraudulent self is bared to the nation."

Hours of surveillance tapes of Dr King still exist, according to Mr Garrow, but remain under seal in the US National Archives until 2027.

The biographer is set to publish his findings in June's Standpoint magazine.

He told The Sunday Times that the rape allegations "pose so fundamental a challenge to his historical stature as to require the most complete and extensive historical review possible."

Mr Garrow noted that if a rape took place, the FBI agents surveilling Dr King also made no attempt to stop it.

He said: "A lot of women will see this as one more historical maltreatment of black women, not only by black ministers. The FBI didn't give a hoot either."

Taiwan calls on China to 'repent' for Tiananmen Square crackdown.
Taiwan has called on China to "sincerely repent" for the bloody crackdown in Tiananmen Square, as the government remains silent on the 30th anniversary of the tragedy. The self-ruling democratic island has also accused the Chinese government of continuing to cover up the killings in Beijing in 1989. Tanks were sent in to quell months of student-led pro-democracy protests on the night of 3 June 1989, with the operation ending the following morning.
