UNITED NATIONS (AP) - September 7, 2010
U.N. Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Atul Khare
told the U.N. Security Council Tuesday that in addition to the 242
rapes in and around the village of Luvungi that were reported
earlier this month, more than 260 other rapes and sexual attacks
took place in Uvira and other regions of North and South Kivu.
In addition, he said, there are some reports that in one
village, Kiluma, all women may have been systematically raped.
Khare called for prosecution of Rwandan rebel FDLR and Congolese
Mai-Mai rebels blamed for many of the attacks and U.N. sanctions
against their leaders.
