UN chief Ban Ki-moon condemns DR Congo 'mass rape'

The United Nations is investigating claims that rebel fighters raped more than 150 women and baby boys in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The attacks happened over four days within miles of a UN base, a US aid worker and a Congolese doctor said.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon condemned the attacks and urged the Congolese government to investigate.
