Government soldiers in the DR Congo have attacked and raped hundreds of women in villages where rebel groups already committed mass rapes this summer, according to a high-level UN official.
UN peacekeepers in the Walikale territory have reported that army troops are committing "rapes, killings and lootings," Margot Wallstrom, the special representative for sexual violence against women in conflict, told the UN security council on Thursday.
The atrocities reportedly occurred after thousands of soldiers were deployed in the region to restore order.
