Congolese militia decapitates more than 40 police: Officials

  A Congolese militia group has decapitated 42 policemen after ambushing them in Central Kasai province, which has seen a spike in deadly violence in recent months, a local official said Saturday. Members of the Kamwina Nsapu militia staged Friday’s attack between the cities of Tshikapa and Kananga, according to Kasai Assembly President Francois Kalamba. The militia members freed six policemen because they spoke the local Tshiluba language, he said. Kasai Gov. Alexis Nkande Myopompa said investigations were underway into the decapitations. Large-scale violence erupted in the Kasai region in August when security forces killed the militia’s leader. More...

The family refused to accept the burial site the government had set aside for him. Tshisekedi’s body was to be laid in state at the...
