    Learn more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/africa/roots-ethnic-conflict-eastern-drc War has raged through the Democratic Republic of Congo for more than a decade — it has been called the deadliest conflict since World War II. The United Nations estimates that 200,000 women and girls have been raped in that time, some victims as young as three years old. Both the Congolese army and rebel groups have used rape as a weapon of war. Armed groups use rape to tear apart families, spread disease and weaken communities. Women are often victimized doubly — first by their rapists and secondly by spouses or family members who then find it dishonorable or socially unacceptable to associate with them.

È responsabile della morte di 70mila civili e del rapimento di 40mila bambini-soldato e bambine-schiave. Come Melanie che aveva 13 anni quando è stata rapita, la sua prigionia è durata quasi cinque anni. La sua è una storia tristemente comune. Molte bambine della sua età vengono prese con la forza e subiscono violenze e torture. Una luce nell'orrore è quella che porta Suor Angélique che, nella piccola città di Dungu, all'estremo nord-est della Repubblica democratica del Congo, ha fatto grandi cose per queste giovani, con piccole risorse. A partire dalla scuola che, come ci racconta, "è la possibilità di realizzare la vita che desideravano da piccole prima di essere catturate."

For much of the same reasons will not recognize that the millions upon millions who have died in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo is genocide as well and in fact just a continuation of the genocide in Rwanda. Still until this day the conflict in the DRC is the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world and the deadliest since the holocaust of WWII. ABC News senior reporter Jim Wooten reports: "It is not like the famine in Somalia. It is not like the flight of the Iraqi Kurds into the mountains of Iran and Turkey. It is not like the siege of Sarajevo or the plight of Bosnians displace by that war. It is not like anything I have ever seen in 30 years as a reporter. It is, I think, the standard against which all future tragedies will be measured."
