More graves found in Kasai region of DR Congo

1041

The United Nations has identified another 38 probable mass graves in Democratic Republic of Congo’s central Kasai region, bringing the total to at least 80 since the outbreak of an insurrection last August.



A spokesman for the UN peacekeeping mission in Congo told reporters in Kinshasa the graves were identified during a joint mission with Congolese military investigators last week to western Kasai.
