BUKAVU, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO - OCTOBER 29: Emiliana Azemahi, age 14, rests with her 10-month old baby boy Moises in the bed in her room on October 29, 2007 Bukavu, DRC. Emiliana was abducted and held for about 3 weeks in 2006. She was raped and abused for weeks by rebels before being released. She later became pregnant and gave birth to Moises in early January 2007. She now lives in a safe house in Panzi, outside Bukavu, DRC. The DRC conflict has seen an unprecedented high rate of rape and abuse of women.
