Rape in DR Congo: Victims and Torturers

Grantee Fiona Lloyd-Davies details in the report above the horror of the ongoing conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The broadcast aired Thursday, May 23, on France 24.

In the east of the country, thousands of women, children and even men were raped last November. A crime committed not by the M23 rebels, but by the regular army, supposed to protect the population. Lloyd-Davies travelled to Minova in South Kivu province, where the rapists are now coming face to face with their victims in court.
