BUKAVU (DR Congo): Nobel Peace Prize co-winner Denis Mukwege on Friday dedicated his award to women around the world who have died in wars and those “confronted with violence every day”.
“This Nobel prize is a recognition of the suffering and the failure to adequately compensate women who are victims of sexual violence in all countries around the world,” he said, speaking outside his clinic in the eastern DR Congo city of Bukavu.
