On November 9, 2017, military prosecutors in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) started trial against 18 accused who face charges that over a period between 2013 and 2016, they abducted 46 children in the village of Kavumu during the night and raped them. The accused are members of an armed militia and will be tried for crimes against humanity by the military prosecutor following calls for justice by local civil society groups.
