dr mkwege, tell us how you learnt about winning the prize. i think you were in surgery, weren't you? and totally surprising? nadia murad, you have expressed mixed feelings on winning the prize because it changed your life so much. you spoke to us on hardtalk about what happened to you in 2016. to raise awareness, you have had to keep retelling your story, which i know is difficult for you. but what is it that you say to those who do not know what happened to you? and what happened to you was that you were taken from your village, along with many other yazidi women,
and with them you were effectively sold and raped many times. dr mkwege, you became a gynaecologist and build a hospital in democratic republic of congo, to help women in childbirth, but i know, when you opened the doors, you had a rather different experience, the patients who were turning up. tell us what happened. and what did happen was that you were presented in the first few months with many more cases of rape. i mean, we're talking all ages. how young was your youngest patient? so it is as a result of war, is it, it is not every day violence? you have described rape as the least of what these women suffer because of the consequences of it. do you think it is a deliberate
military tactic, that it is actually sanctioned from the senior levels? dr mkwege is talking about rape as a weapon of war. did it feel like warfare to you when you and the other yazidi women were taken? when you consider how it can be stopped, it is recognised in international law as a crime against humanity, what more do you think can be done to stop it? does it come down to enforcing those laws? do you ever expect to see the men who raped you in court?
