These attacks took place not in Congo but in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo). Congo, aka the Republic of Congo is a much smaller country to the west of DR Congo.
Two U.N. peacekeepers from Tanzania were killed and 18 more wounded in a series of attacks Monday in eastern Congo by suspected Ugandan rebels of the ADF group, the United Nations said.
Secretary-General Antonio Guterres strongly condemned the attacks and urged Congolese authorities “to swiftly investigate these incidents and bring the perpetrators to justice,” U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
The U.N. chief noted that attacks targeting peacekeepers may constitute war crimes under international law, the spokesman said.
