DR Congo soldiers 'ordered to rape' women


A team reporting for BBC Newsnight has uncovered evidence that soldiers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo were ordered to rape women by their superior officers.

On Thursday, foreign ministers of the G8 announced what they called an historic pact and $35m to try to tackle the use of rape as a weapon of war.

Anne Mawathe reports from the town of Minova in the east of the country. Her report contains details which viewers may find upsetting.
