The RFK Foundation has awarded its 2009 prize for best international reporting on television to Michael Kavanagh and to the public television program WorldFocus for Kavanagh's reporting on rape as a weapon of war in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. Kavanagh did the reporting last fall, on one of three trips to the region commissioned and funded by the Pulitzer Center.
