UN Investigates Rapes in DRC Unrest

The UN investigates allegations of rapes and other abuses by the DRC troops

The United Nations (UN) is investigating allegations of rapes and other abuses by Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) troops as they pulled back from advancing rebels.
 
The investigation comes amid claims that dozens of women were raped by government forces in the town of Minova in eastern DRC last month.
 
UN spokesperson, Martin Nesirky, says that, "If allegations are substantiated they are brought to the attention of the DRC government with requests to take corrective measures to prevent the recurrence of such violations and to hold perpetrators accountable."
