(Reuters) – Eleven Congolese militia fighters were jailed for life on Wednesday for raping dozens of girls as young as 18 months during ceremonies meant to give the men supernatural powers rights groups observing the trial said Human rights campaigners hailed the court’s verdict as a landmark decision in a country where they say rape by armed groups is commonplace and often unpunished The fighters from Djeshi ya Yesu – the Army of Jesus – militia were accused of raping at least 37 girls near the village of Kavumu in Democratic Republic of Congo’s South Kivu province between 2013 and 2016 the rights groups said According to the prosecution the group’s leader provincial lawmaker Frederic Batumike employed a spiritual adviser who told the fighters that raping very young children would give them mystical protection against their enemies Militia members including Batumike were also convicted of murder membership in a rebel movement and illegal weapons possession The court ruled that the rapes and murders amounted to crimes against humanity the rights groups said The crimes triggered an international outcry Rights groups accused the government of a slow response “This was necessary The victims have been waiting It’s a strong signal to anyone who would contemplate this kind of offence” Charles Cubaka Cicura a lawyer for the victims told Reuters after the verdict was announced Millions died in eastern Congo in regional wars between 1996 and 2003 most from hunger and disease Dozens of armed groups continue to prey on local population and fight for control of the area’s rich natural resources Experts say Congo has made some progress in combating sexual violence and several high-level militia and army commanders have been prosecuted in recent years but the problem remains pervasive “This trial demonstrated that justice can be served in the Congo . even when the accused wield significant power and are highly organised” said Karen Naimer of Physicians for Human Rights one of the groups supporting the victims The mobile court which set up in Kavumu village allocated $5000 in compensation to each rape victim and $15000 to the families of men murdered by

plan will be executed over the next two-and-a-half years and will cost Rs 6000 crore said officials The plan will include cleaning the river developing the river bank as a biodiversity zone treating drain water and using spaces on the banks of drains as public spaces said government sources The new plan comes at a time when there is growing pressure on the government from the National Green Tribunal to clean the river “There have been three Yamuna action plans costing crores Other plans relating to sewage treatment were proposed All these plans were in isolation and Rs 25000 to Rs 30000

Other projects will look at river flow and river-front development… An ecological riverfront will also be developed across 9000 hectares This is being done for the first time in the world on such a large scale” Instead of just cleaning the river the plan aims to build the area around the river and drains “The river and all drains are being seen as one system We are not looking at the Yamuna in isolation We are not only cleaning the river and drains but are also developing an ecology an economy around it” said the official “On both sides of the large drains for 250m water-oriented development will take place We will be creating a clean water body and public space This will lead to an automatic rise in the value of land around these drains The idea is to notify 250m around it as

out for the Indians at the second Grand Slam of the year India has a long history with the courts of red clay in Paris with Ramesh Krishnan winning the boys’ title way back in 1979 This venue was also where India won their first Grand Slam title — Mahesh Bhupathi with partner Rika Hiraki in mixed doubles in 1997 Bhupathi went on to lift three more doubles trophies in his career — two men’s doubles titles with Paes (1999 and 2001) and another mixed doubles one with Sania Mirza (2013) Paes also clinched the title with different partners — men’s doubles with Lukas Dlouhy (2009) and the mixed doubles with Hingis in 2016 Mirza apart from her mixed doubles title also finished runners-up in 2011 with Elena Vesnina and 2016 with Ivan Dodig With five Indians in the main draw this time around here’s a look at their form partners and draws Sania Mirza Sania Mirza with YaroslavaShvedova Image courtesy: Instagram/@slavasays The former World No 1 has had a quiet season so far in 2017 Mirza started the year on a high winning the Brisbane title in January but has made only one final since then — in Miami It was also after the Miami tournament that Mirza decided to split with her Czech partner Barbora Strycova due to the latter’s hectic schedule of singles and doubles and her own desire of playing with someone who only focused on doubles Since the split Mirza has been trying to build a steady partnership with Kazakhstani Yaroslava Shvedova During the last four weeks they reached the Madrid quarter-finals and the last-four at Rome At the French Open they are seeded fourth and have a tricky draw — they start against Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Australia’s Daria Gavrilova and could face a potential battle against the unseeded yet highly successful pairing of Australians Casey Dellacqua and Ashleigh Barty in the third round In the mixed doubles Mirza will aim to do one better than last year with Dodig and the duo lead the bottom half of the draw as the second seeds Mirza and Dodig might have to take on Elina Svitolina and Artem Sitak in their third round and there is the possibility of an all-Indian affair in the quarters with Bopanna and Gabriela Dabrowski also in the same half Mirza has been struggling with a knee injury but insists it’s not a serious issue yet However clay is one of the most brutal surfaces to play on and one which Mirza has had the least amount of success It could turn out to be a very testing Major for the Indian Rohan Bopanna Rohan Bopanna with Pablo Cuevas Image courtesy: ATPWorldTourcom Bopanna started 2017 with a title at the Chennai Open and consistent results over the last five months have seen his doubles ranking rise to 22 He paired up with Pablo Cuevas at the Australian Open and the duo renewed their partnership for the clay season where they won the title at Monte Carlo and made the last-eight at Rome Cuevas has had some great results in singles as well especially on clay his favorite surface He is ranked 23rd in both singles and doubles but his singles’ career hasn’t affected the pair’s doubles partnership yet Bopanna did admit that they haven’t practiced together as much as they would have liked but is confident they can challenge for the French Open title Bopanna and Cuevas start their campaign against French wildcards Paul-Henri Mathieu and Mathias Bourgue and have a potentially tough third-round encounter against fifth seeds Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares The Indo-Uruguayan pair is in the bottom half of the men’s doubles draw which is headlined by second seeds and two-time

pairs meet again Leander Paes Leander Paes with Martina Hingis AP Paes and Hingis will be aiming to defend their mixed doubles crown over the course of the two weeks but have plenty of hurdles in their path as an unseeded team Paes’ dip in form and rankings meant that the duo did not have a high enough combined ranking to justify a seeding but this should hardly be a factor at play The veterans are playing together for the third year in a row and their chemistry and experience trump over rankings and draws Paes and Hingis have been drawn in the same half as top seeds John Peers and Chan Yung-jan who are both talented and successful doubles players The Indo-Swiss pair play Katarina Srebotnik and Raven Klassen who are the No 4 seeds in the first round In the men’s doubles Paes is participating with American Scott Lipsky and this partnership has registered quite a few decent performances in the Challenger circuit Paes and Lipsky won at Tallahassee and reached the semi-finals at

of a title at Bordeaux though they did lose in the first round at Lyon last week Over the clay season Sharan and Raja also made the quarters at Houston and Estoril which are both ATP 250 events where the competition is stiffer The Indian duo was placed in the top half of the men’s doubles draw and they face Spaniard Nicholas Almagro and American Steve Johnson in the first round Other Indians There
