DR Congo to release Rwandan soldiers amid tensions

Angolan President João Lourenço said the Democratic Republic of Congo agreed to release two Rwandan soldiers it detained last week, amid rising border tensions.

Mr Lourenço, mediator in the tension, made the announcement after separate talks with his Congolese and Rwandan counterparts.

His office said Félix Tshisekedi and Paul Kagame had agreed to meet face-to-face in Angola, but didn’t give a date.

Rwanda and the DR Congo have accused each other of aiding armed militias in the border region and encouraging attacks.
