Congo's new cardinal pleads for peace
December 07, 2010
Returning to the Democratic Republic of Congo after his formal elevation to the College of Cardinals, Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo issued an appeal for peace in the embattled African nation.
In a related development, two soldiers have been arrested in connection with the murder of a Catholic priest, Father Christian Bakulene, last November. The accused soldiers are believed to be former members of a rebel force that has been partially integrated into the nation's army.
