Have Congo killings ended UN peacekeeping in Africa?

United Nations Deputy Special Representative for Congo, David Gressly

The United Nations Deputy Special Representative for Congo says military offenses will be launched against militants who killed at least 15 Tanzanian UN peacekeepers last week in eastern Congo.

In a memorial ceremony Monday, December 11, David Gressly said those who staged the assault, which killed 15 United Nations peacekeepers and wounded 50 others, will pay for their actions. The Dec. 7 attack was the deadliest single attack on a UN peacekeeping mission in nearly 25 years. The UN peacekeeping mission in Congo is the largest in the world.
