UN Troops Killed

Unfortunately, while the situation in Togo might actually result in an improved government for its citizens (yes, I'm a bit of an optomist), the same can't be said for the Democratic Republic of Congo.


Nine United Nations peacekeepers from Bangladesh have been killed in an armed ambush in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the UN says.

The attack happened on Friday morning in the north-eastern Ituri region, where 4,800 peacekeepers are deployed.

A UN spokesman said the troops were ambushed by "unidentified armed elements" while they were on patrol.


Requiescat in pace.

Read the story.
