Congo to probe deaths of American, Swedish expertsDemocratic Republic of Congo says it will investigate the deaths of an American and a Swedish expert for the United Nations and their interpreter, whose bodies were found in a shallow grave on Monday after the team disappeared more than two weeks ago.

American Michael Sharp, Swedish national Zaida Catalan and their interpreter Betu Tshintela went missing on March the 12th while looking into recent large-scale violence and alleged human rights violations by the Congolese army and local militia groups.

It was the first recorded disappearance of international workers in the once-calm Kasai provinces, where the Kamwina Nsapu militia has been fighting security forces since last year.

More than 400 people have been killed and at least two hundred thousand displaced since government troops killed the militia’s leader in August, according to the United Nations.
