31st May 2008, 15:17:32 UTC

Months after a peace agreement to end conflict in North Kivu province, eastern DRC, civilians are still
being killed, raped, abducted and tortured by armed group and government forces.
Amnesty International has found substantial evidence that armed groups in North Kivu have
continued to commit crimes under international law, including unlawful killings, rape, torture, and
the recruitment and use of child soldiers, even after the armed groups promised to immediately end

unlawfully detained and in some cases tortured and ill-treated captured children, and continue to
rape and sexually abuse women and girls.
