Anti-government protesters wait outside the hospital where opposition activist Dmytro Bulatov is being treated in Kiev January 31, 2014. TV coverage of a prominent opposition activist showing marks of torture inflicted by mystery kidnappers - along with reports police tried to arrest the man in hospital - fuelled anger in the Ukranian capital that has become so explosive that the army made a rare statement, calling for urgent moves to ease tension .

Ana Noelia Abrego, who was accused of being an accomplice of a gang of rapists and kidnappers, reacts while sitting in a court that deals with gender-oriented crimes in Guatemala City July 3, 2013. A large proportion of women in Latin America and the Caribbean have experienced sexual violence, mostly committed by men they know, according to a report produced by the Pan American Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The study states that over a quarter of women surveyed in both Guatemala and El Salvador said they had experienced physical or sexual violence from a partner, among women aged 15-49 who had ever been married or lived with a boyfriend. November 25 marks the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The gang of 18 men were sentenced from 54 to 108 years for having kidnapped and raped 14 women between March and June 2012. Abrego was convicted of being an accomplice. Picture taken July 3, 2013.
