Over two dozen Girl Raped in East Congo


More than two dozen children in the Democratic Republic of Congo is among the hundreds of victims of rape in the eastern part of the war torn country, according to the UN, Friday.

Only one of 28 children were confirmed victims of rape are girls, and one case involving the rape attempt, said the office of UN special envoy for children from armed conflict, Radhika Coomaraswamy in a statement.

The UN set a small child as a child under the age of 18 years. According to the statement, the little boy who became victims aged between 12 and 17 years.

Local health officials in Rubonga has said eight more children have faced sexual harassment, the statement said, despite Coomaraswamy's office have not confirmed all of these cases.

Earlier this week, UN troops declare peace keepers in Congo, MONUSCO, found that at least 240 people recently have been raped in a small town Luvungi, which is a new wave of victims of rape.

UN spokesman Farhan Haq, Friday, said a small number of children raped is part of the total number of rape victims.

MONUSCO stating that the troops were told about the mass rape of more than one week after it happened, even if they have a base just 30 miles from the scene. It's surprising the UN Security Council, stating MONUSCO must improve communication with local residents.

Seven years after the 1998-2003 war that claimed more than 5 million people, Congo is still being undermined by insecurity while Rwandan Hutu militias and local Mai Mai, wandering in the eastern region, which is rich in minerals, as well as cruel rebel Lord's Resistance Army of Uganda is rampant in parts north.

Rebels from the Mai Mai militia and Rwandan Hutu FDLR occupy Luvungi in North Kivu province from July 30 until August 3.

UN officials have said they first become aware of the rape on August 12. But one report from the UN humanitarian agency, OCHA, which was dated two days earlier, referring to the rapes were reported and claimed at least 25 people in number.

One aid group has said many women were raped in a rollicking by two to six armed men.

The attack has stunned the United Nations, the guardian of peace troops in Congo are the largest in comparison with elsewhere. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has made efforts to protect civilians and combat sexual violence as a central theme of his leadership on the world body.
