A Rwandan FDLR rebel commander arrested in DR Congo

By on October 28, 2016

A Rwandan Hutu rebel commander wanted for atrocities committed on Congolese soil has been arrested in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Habyarimana Mucebo, a senior member of the Rwandan FDLR rebel group, was captured in Rutshuru, north-eastern DR Congo.

Members of the FDLR fled into DR Congo after the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.

Most senior figures of the group are wanted by Rwanda for their alleged role in the 1994 killings.

Congolese officials accuse Mucebo of links to atrocities blamed on the FDLR.

For many years, the Hutu rebel group had become a source of instability in DR Congo’s North Kivu province.
