MISNA - July 13, 2005 12:10 PM

An inquiry team of forensic and human rights experts was sent by the United Nations Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUC) to a village in the east of the nation where over the weekend at least 39 people were killed, some burned alive in their homes, in an armed attack. As referred by the MONUC, aside from gathering major evidence on the events, the team will also conduct investigations to identify the culprits of the attack. Based on information received by MISNA, the attack was carried out during the night between Saturday and Sunday in the location of Ntutumamba, around 70km north of the provincial capital Bukavu, and the survivors attribute the attack to armed rebels that preside the area and are no longer correlated to the old groups known in the times of the conflict. General Cammaert, East division commander of the UN peace force, referred that a large-scale search operation for those responsible of the attack against Ntutumamba (also known as Mamba) will be launched in the next days. The time will come in which we will catch them, Cammaert told the MONUC Radio Okapi broadcast.
