War Against Humanity in Eastern Congo, DRC:
Women Appealing for Peace
© Eberhard Riedel, "Unbearable Pain - Eastern Congo, 2011"
This woman walks with great pain; jailed by an RCD (Congolese Rally for Democracy) soldier because she stopped his wife from stealing her casawa, she was brutally tortured and raped for seven days; while in jail her husband left her. Eight years later she received treatment for urinary tract injuries; as she felt better she went to the market with a friend; on their way back they were attacked by Hutu militia criminals; she was brutally abused by three and her friend by four attackers. The friend who was pregnant dies one week later.
