Conakry, Guinea

Aissata Barry in the stands at the national stadium where she was raped by soldiers during the massacre of 28 September 2009.

'I was held in the stadium and raped there in the stands. They hit me on the head and I lost consciousness. When I regained consciousness I saw a soldier in front of me and he helped me to put on my clothes.
He said he would help me but another soldier turned up and ordered me to laugh while he shot dead three men. Then he made me drag some bodies out of the way at the gates of the stadium. Another soldier was playing music and forcing people to dance naked. I got HIV. Since that time I've always felt sick, though now I am taking the treatment. I think about that day all the time. I think those people need to see justice.'
