Clashes in Congo: more than a hundred dead, the UN «deeply concerned»

More than a hundred people, including 39 women, were killed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo from 9 to 13 February – during the fighting between government troops and militants of paramilitary groups Kamwina Nsapu, armed with spears and machetes.

About it reports on Tuesday, February 14, the news Agency Reuters, citing a source in the UN.

The Agency’s representative on human rights Liz Throssell said that this international organization is «deeply concerned» by the number of dead and «disproportionate use of force» by the military.

According to the source, the soldiers fired «indiscriminately», and that was the reason for the deaths of civilians. The UN promises to conduct a «full and independent investigation» of this incident and calls upon soldiers to show restraint.
