The most recent conflict in Congo began 12 years ago when Rwanda and Uganda backed the rebels who were seeking to remove Laurent Kabila, the then president. An estimated 6 million people have been killed over this period; rape is an ugly, common tactic for terrorizing the population. Because Congo is a major source of materials that are key to modern industry, the responsibility for this war extends worldwide. An Al Jazeera panel discusses the roots of the conflict and offers some ideas for ending it.
