UNITED NATIONS SEEK JUSTICE OVER D.R CONGO MASS GRAVE

A United Nations spokesperson Farhan Haq has said that the body wants the perpetrators of killings in the Democratic Republic of Congo to be “ brought to justice” after it confirmed the discovery of two mass graves in the Ituri province in the east of the country.

They found bodies of some 42 people including 12 women and six children in Nyamamba village and then the bodies of seven men in Mbogi village about 30kilometers east of the city of Bunia.
There has been suggestion linking the deaths to the Codeco militia group but Mr Haq said that cannot be confirmed and further investigation would be needed.

He also added that the UN is conducting patrols in the area and supporting DR Congo’s military. BBC
