The sentencing this week of a former Congolese rebel leader for crimes against humanity committed in the Central African Republic (CAR) has been hailed by the UN as a sign of progress in global action to end impunity for wartime rape.

The conviction of Jean-Pierre Bemba by the International Criminal Court came just days after the first commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict, observed on 19 June.

Dianne Penn reports on a panel discussion held at UN Headquarters on Tuesday, the day the judgement was delivered.
