Canada begins an inquiry into violence against indigenous women, after a string of unresolved murders in the country.
The long-delayed investigation comes amid talk of national reconciliation in Canada which has witnessed decades of violence directed at indigenous women. Ottawa announced that an independent commission would look into the violence starting in September. However, indigenous groups in the country have been quick to criticize the commission, saying it doesn’t include any indigenous members.

But a more recent report put the number of the missing indigenous women at nearly 4,000.
