Kikandi Shandwe and Bernard Bafulwa Baranga were released without charge on 31 May. Zélote Farini is currently in detention, accused of taking part in a March 2002 grenade attack in Goma. The three men were feared 'disappeared' on 27 May following a wave of arrests by the authorities. Amnesty International is also concerned for two other men arrested at around the same time and who remain in detention. Djento Mahungu is a prisoner of conscience, whilst Simon Salumu requires urgent medical attention.
