Rape and sexual violence have been used on a large scale as a weapon of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Human Rights organisations say the conflict there has claimed more lives than any since 2nd World War, yet it has been little reported in the Western media. Despite peace talks and the presence of UN forces violence continues particularly in the North Eastern Ituri region.
