"Il-persuna tal-mara saret parti mill-gwerra u l-istupru qiegħed jintuża bħala arma". Dan qalu l-ginekologu mill-Kongo Denis Mukwege hekk kif irċieva l-Premju Sakharov għal-Libertà tal-Ħsieb 2014 fi Strasbourg nhar l-Erbgħa 26 ta' Novembru.

The need for a holistic EU approach to migration and concerns over the way migrants are treated in Spain were debated with the new European Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos on Tuesday.
