Rape. pillage, and plunder continue to take place in the Congo. 6 years of madness, beatings, killings, and gang rapes sweep the nation. 40,000 rapes in 6 years. Will it ever stop?
As one example of many crimes, Amnesty cited testimony from the youngest of three sisters raped by up to 20 members of a faction which seized the eastern town of Bukavu in June.

"Jeanette was raped by seven soldiers in the storeroom, Francine by eight soldiers in the shop," 16-year-old Edith said.

"They put me in the bathroom. I fought with five of the soldiers when they tried to make my brothers watch me being raped. But they beat me so hard."
