Democratic Republic of Congo: North Kivu: No end to war on women and children
Months after a peace agreement to end conflict in North Kivu province, civilians are still being killed, raped, abducted and tortured by armed group and government forces. Amnesty International has found evidence that armed groups have continued to commit crimes, including unlawful killings, rape, torture, and the recruitment of child soldiers. Government security forces have also unlawfully detained and ill-treated children, and continue to sexually abuse women and girls. Amnesty International is urging the DRC government and armed groups to renew their commitment to upholding international human rights and humanitarian law.
