French Troops Find 22 Hacked Bodies in Congo

French peacekeepers found the hacked bodies of 22 elderly people, women and children in a village outside the Congolese town of Bunia after trading gunfire with militiamen, a spokesman said on Tuesday. The bodies provided the latest evidence of massacres taking place beyond the protection of the French troops, who began deploying in Bunia last month to shield residents from clashes between ethnic Hema and Lendu militia. The multinational force’s spokesman said a French patrol discovered the 22 mutilated bodies in the village of Nizi, about 19 miles north of Bunia, during a patrol on Monday.
