In the Congo, the United Nations says a video appears to show the killing of two U.N. investigators, who went missing more than a month ago. The government, which had been accused of complicity in their disappearance, screened the video Monday and said it shows the killings were carried out by an anti-government militia. The U.N. investigators went missing in the Kasai region, where at least 17 mass graves have been unearthed over the last month, amid ongoing fighting between rebels and government forces.
