DRC: Three militia leaders surrender in Congo

DR Congo rebels surrender 


Three militia leaders operating in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo have surrendered, AFP news agency reports quoting local officials.

Among those who gave themselves up is Mubiayi Dewayi. He is accused of publicly beheading the wife of a former administrator of Luebo territory.

Luebo administrator Joseph Mutshipayi said Mr Dewayi "came out of the bush with 60 militiamen".

"He gave us four AK 47 rifles and ammunition," he said, adding that they had expressed a desire to work in the army.

Earlier this week 600 other rebels in the Kasai region laid down their weapons, saying they were ending their uprising. They they turned themselves in as a sign of support for new President Felix Tshisekedi.
