Violence Against Congolese Women

A woman returning from the market, somewhere along the road she met men in uniform well armed .These men raped her carrying an 8 months pregnancy. She was hospitalized at the Panzi hospital in a critical condition.
Another woman was beaten and undressed in public by her husband because the latter had paid a debt they owed in their home, from money she and the husband had made from the market.
Thank you.
