Children among hundreds raped in Congo, U.N. says

(CNN) -- More than two dozen children were among the hundreds raped by armed rebels in the war-torn eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the United Nations said.
Twenty-seven minors, including one boy, were among the victims, the U.N. said Friday. One attempted rape was also reported.
The children were among 240 people raped by Rwandan and Congolese rebels who raided villages in North Kivu province between July 30 and August 3, aid groups said. Attackers blocked roads and prevented villagers from reaching outside communications. Many homes were also looted.
Many of the victims were raped by two to six men, according to the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO).
MONUSCO, the United Nations peacekeeping force in the country, raised the number of victims after earlier reports put it at 156.
Since the rapes were first publicly reported on August 22, more victims have come forward, the force said.

That's working out well.
The “United” Nations. LOL! What a joke and huge waste of money.
The UN.......worse than a bag of dog sh##
Children raped? That’s nothing. Just look at Arizona.
No different now than its been for thousands of years.
Seriously, I remember that the bushmen women were particular objects of lust for Bantu men.
I never saw any that lived though - they were all bayoneted - the menfolk killed with automatic fire.
Hillary Clinton thinks this organization's Human Rights should be looking into anyone's Human Rights violations? She is NUTS!
....you are kidding aren’t you?
What else can you expect from Rwandan and Congolese rebels or from their legitimate government for that matter.
This is why I’m not too concerned about the U.N. taking over America. They can’t even manage a country in Africa. Really...why are still part of this corrupt organization?
Those human rights violations are almost as bad as ours here in Arizona according to Hillary.
The UN is there to make sure everyone is espousing proper left wing PC views. The actual welfare of human beings is irrelevant.
