Former rebels beaten last November by government and UN troops in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Monday accused the army of executing 10 prisoners of war. `We are completely distressed, stunned, frustrated` to learn of `the summary execution of the prisoners of war by the DRC`s military intelligence service in Kinshasa ... between the months of July and August 2014,` political chief, Bertrand Bisimwa, of the Movement of March 23 (M23) said in a statement. The M23 statement listed 10 victims said to be former members of the National Congress for the Defence of the People (CNDP), a largely ethnic Tutsi rebel movement that signed a peace deal with the government on March 23, 2009. Like other rebel forces in the strife-wracked North Kivu province, ex-CNDP forces were integrated into the army, but these fighters protested that other aspects of the peace accord were not implemented by the Kinshasa government.
