Investigators likely slain by Congolese militia: UN probe

Investigators likely slain by Congolese militia: UN probeTwo UN investigators killed in March likely died at the hands of Congolese militia members, a UN inquiry found, adding that further investigation will be required to “fully ascertain the identity” of those involved. Michael Sharp, an American, and Zaida Catalan, a Swedish-Chilean dual national, were found murdered in March in the Democratic Republic of Congo while on a UN mission investigating violence and mass graves in the country’s restive Kasai province. “A group of Congolese, likely militia members from the Kasai Central province, was responsible,” read the board’s executive summary, obtained Wednesday by AFP.
