Swedish Funds to Combat Rape in Congo

Sweden is donating 1.3 million US dollars to combat sexual violence against women in the Congo.

The Swedish international development authority says the money will be used mostly for legal action against the rapists - since rape continues to be a weapon against women in the Estern Congo and very few of the culprits are being prosecuted.
