DR Congo arrests Rwandan FDLR rebel commander

FULL ARTICLE. A Rwandan Hutu rebel commander wanted for atrocities committed in DR Congo has been arrested. Habyarimana Mucebo, a senior member of the Rwandan FDLR rebel group, was captured in Rutshuru, north-eastern DR Congo. Mr Mucebo, the FDLR intelligence chief, has been taken into custody for interrogation, the army says. Mr Mucebo’s arrest is not linked to genocide charges as initially reported. Members of the FDLR fled into DR Congo after the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and for many years, the Hutu rebel group had become a source of instability in DR Congo’s North Kivu province.
