What is Nick Kristof’s most popular word? Hint:
Iâ€™ve learned some new words.
One is â€śautocannibalism,â€ť coined in French but equally appropriate in English. It describes what happens when a militia here in eastern Congoâ€™s endless war cuts flesh from living victims and forces them to eat it.
Another is â€śre-rape.â€ť The need for that term arose because doctors were seeing women and girls raped, re-raped and re-raped again, here in the world capital of murder, rape, mutilation.
