US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saw firsthand on Aug. 11 the violence against women and children in eastern Congo (DRC) and demanded the government to do more to protect civilians. Clinton spoke in the eastern Congolese city of Goma, capital of North Kivu province which aid groups say is the most dangerous place on earth for women and children."We are very concerned about civilian casualties, both deaths and rapes, and other injuries from the military action," she told a news conference after meeting President Joseph Kabila.
