Oh that's good news. Mind you it's about time. It's taken years and years for it to be recognised. Thanks for sharing.

Yes about time indeed. Far too long in coming.

Wait. Rape wasn't always considered a war crime?

Possibly already considered a war crime but this is the first conviction for rape as a war crime.
