The United Nations has, meanwhile, again raised concerns over recent violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The UN Joint Human Rights Office in Congo says the country's state security services are responsible for most of the deaths in last month's violence. At least 48 civilians were shot, burned, beaten, or hacked to death. The rights body says there were at least four hundred and twenty two cases of rights abuses during the violence. Congolese police say they have yet to receive the report, and will respond once they have.
