UN to investigate DR Congo attack on peacekeepers

United Nations has set up a special investigation of the attack that killed 15 UN peacekeepers and wounded 43 others in the Democratic Republic of Congo last month. The December 7 attack in the Beni territory of North Kivu province was one of the worst to target UN peacekeepers in recent history in the central African Country. A UN statement said Secretary-General Antonio Guterres appointed Dmitry Titov, a Russian national who has worked in UN peacekeeping to lead the special investigation that will also look into other attacks against peacekeepers in that area.
