Four burned alive in DR Congo mob justice

Four suspected criminals in the Democratic Republic of Congo have been “burned alive and their bodies displayed in public in what an official called ‘people’s justice'”, reports AFP news agency.

It follows a series of violent robberies in DR Congo, the news agency adds, quoting a police officer as saying that a couple have been killed in their shop today.

Both incidents took place in DR Congo’s second-largest city, Lubumbashi, where AFP says frequent reports of armed robberies have led to public anger.

The news agency says a police spokesperson, General Paulin Kyungu, confirmed the killings and what he called “this people’s justice” against the four victims.

AFP reports that protesters have gathered in the Lubumbashi neighbourhood of Tabac Congo where the four individuals were lynched, and “a police uniform was placed next to one of the bodies”, which General Kyungu says is an attempt to discredit his police officers.

“We’re angry,” one resident of Tabac Congo told AFP.

“The bandits work in tandem with the police. We decided to take charge with people’s justice.
