DR Congo Casts Doubt On UN Report on Atrocities in Kasai Region
The Democratic Republic of the Congo has rejected a report by a United Nations human rights team that accused the army of committing mass killings, torture and rape in the country's war-torn Kasai region. Human Rights Minister Marie-Ange Mushobekwa Mushobekwa says military police are investigating soldiers suspected of committing crimes against civilians. "They won't go unpunished," she said.
