#83 sexual violence

I heard this shocking story over the BBC international radio station, a followup of last year’s reporting — a Congolese woman was raped by 19 men and she saw her entire family members killed before her eyes. They even made her killed her baby by ‘pulling the string’ to strangle the baby to death.

Today she is survived with her 5-year old daughter. I believe she must be living for her daughter — otherwise she would have taken her own life.

How depraved these 19 men were to rape the same woman?! These men must be psychologically sick and are worse than animals.

I wonder if you could read and hear this through the link:

Apparently sexual violence is common in many parts of Africa — women and girls are raped daily!
