Democratic Republic of Congo – Killings near Beni (May 13, 2015)


France condemns the latest massacres carried out on May 13 near the town of Beni, in North Kivu, which left more than 20 civilians dead.

We offer our sympathies to the families of the victims and call on the Congolese authorities, with the support of the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo, to do everything they can to protect civilians, oppose armed groups, identify the perpetrators of violent actions, and bring them to justice.
