A new U.N. report names 21 countries including Sri Lanka where rape and other sexual violence has been committed in current and recent conflicts.
 
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon´s report, launched Thursday, says there is now unprecedented political momentum globally to end conflict-related sexual violence, but more action is needed regionally and nationally to respond to these crimes. 
 
"Covering 21 countries of concern in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East, the report shows that this truly is a global crime," Zainab Hawa Bangura, the secretary-general´s special representative on sexual violence in conflict, told a news conference.
 
The report, covering 2013, details reported sexual violence in the 21 countries which also include Angola, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia, Colombia, Guinea, Liberia, Libya, Nepal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sudan and Yemen.

    Ban will never count Yankees for raping Iraqi and Afghanistanis. The whole world witnessed their brutal atrocities in above countries.

    How come India is not on the list . A woman is raped every 20 minutes in India per their own statics. The same goes for the USA too. How often is a woman raped in Sri Lanka? This is all harassment for our closeness to China.

    What "current and recent conflicts." are they talking about. It amazes one how they keep coming up with these stupid accusations. And from where did Bangura get the reports.

    UN would publish anything written by their gang members. It looks more like some sexual violence has been committed by Pillay on Ban Ki Moon
