A four-day international summit on ending sexual violence in war zones and conflict areas has been launched in London.

The summit, to be attended by more than 100 countries, aims to identify ways to better investigate and prosecute cases of sexual violence and provide support for women and girls.
Opening the summit in London's docklands on Tuesday, actress and UN envoy Angelina Jolie said political will was needed globally to treat sexual violence as a priority and tackle a culture of impunity.
