Despite more than 800 reported rapes in Liberia last year, only 34 men were convicted.
The United Nations is calling for the end of “widespread impunity” for sex attackers in a country where up to three quarters of all women and girls have been raped.
A new report found that children under the age of five were among those sexually attacked last year in Liberia, where the vast majority of documented rape victims are minors.
Despite more than 800 reported rapes, only 34 convictions were made for the crime in 2015, with officials warning that the assaults are vastly underreported due to widespread stigma and discrimination against victims.
