Accounts of rape and sexual slavery during the war in Congo in the early 2000s dominated the second day of militia leader Bosco Ntaganda's trial at The Hague War Crimes Court on Thursday. Lawyers described the pain girls suffered as forced "wives" to senior officers and said that girls as young as 12 were abducted into Ntaganda's Union of Congolese Patriots and forced into sexual slavery.
