LONDON — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called for an end to rape and sexual violence in conflict zones as he joined actress Angelina Jolie and Britain's foreign minister Friday at a London conference on the topic.

Kerry said the world must stop looking away from the topic of rape and that it was time to "banish sexual violence to the dark ages in the history books."

"We will not tolerate rape as a tactic of war and intimidation," he said, adding the issue was personal to him as a war veteran and as the father of two daughters.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter also sent their support via video messages.
