Displaced children in DRC

The UN Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, MONUSCO, says it's concerned about reports of gross human rights violations.

They include a summary execution of more than 70 men and women committed in two villages in the North Kivu province.

The reports suggest that the executions were allegedly committed mainly by armed groups in order to spread terror among the population.

A team from the Mission is on the ground to verify the allegations.

The head of the Mission, Martin Kobler, said that "any person involved in such acts would face justice.

He added that the Mission will "spare no efforts to neutralize all the armed groups responsible for such acts."
