16 year-old Fatoumata Traoré, a victim of gender based violence in Mali.

Fighting between Government forces and rebels in the northern part of Mali, which started early last year, has caused insecurity, instability and a growing refugee crisis.

The Human Rights Council says human rights violations were committed by rebels, terrorist groups and other organized transnational crime networkS, particularly in the north of the country.

These abuses, which included violence against women and children, summary and extrajudicial executions, and pillaging, were condemned by the Council.

Today, we tell you the story of Fatoumata, who is one of the victims of the atrocities.
