Democratic Republic of Congo: Mass rapes in Walikale: Still a need for protection and justice in eastern Congo
During four terrible days in July and August 2010, more than 300 women, girls, men and boys were raped by armed men in Walikale Territory, North Kivu. These shocking crimes highlight the abject failure of both the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the UN to protect Congolese civilians from violence, in particular sexual violence. The DRC has to establish a fair and effective criminal and civil justice system, if human rights are ever to prosper there.
