Figures from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs estimates that one in three women in the Eastern DRC have been raped. Over 3.8 million people have died as a result of the conflict in DRC, which has been called Ì¢‰âÒAfrica’s World War.Ì¢‰âÂå It is the deadliest conflict since World War II, with a death toll exceeding Bosnia, Kosovo, Rwanda and Darfur in Sudan. The conflict began in 1998 when troops from the DRC (formerly Zaire), Angola, Namibia and Zimbabwe began fighting with troops from Rwanda and Uganda. A 2002 ceasefire, enforced by United Nations peacekeeping forces, has been violated by all sides. (Assist News Service)ÌâåÊ
