Brazil’s Cruz to head UN’s DR Congo mission

“The UN has appointed a Brazilian general credited with bringing a Haiti slum under control to lead peacekeepers in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Gen Carlos Alberto dos Santos Cruz will lead 20,000 troops, including a new combat force charged with targeting rebels in the east of the country. This is the largest offensive mandate given to any UN peacekeeping force.”
