Why Is William Hague Teaming Up With Angelina Jolie?
Tuesday 10th June 2014
William Hague is taking part in a "strange double act" with Angelina Jolie to stop the use of rape as a tactic of war.
William Hague is hosting a global summit in London this morning with Angelina Jolie on how the world can deal with sexual violence in conflict.
The Foreign Secretary told LBC the use of rape as a war crime is one of the great mass crimes of the 20th and 21st century.
He told Nick Ferrari: "Deliberate, systematic use of rape, usually against women, but also against men and children, to terrorise and humiliate populations, this makes peace in conflict much harder to bring about."
