Bodies discovered in central Congo are U.N. investigators - government | Reuters

ABIDJAN Democratic Republic of Congo's government confirmed on Tuesday that two bodies discovered by villagers were those of two U.N. investigators who disappeared this month in an area wracked by a violent uprising.

"It's now a certainty. It is the two investigators. We identified the third body in the grave with them as their Congolese interpreter," Communications Minister Lambert Mende said.
