Democratic Republic of Congo: Fear for safety / arbitrary arrest

, N° d'index: AFR 62/020/1999

Amnesty International is concerned for the safety of the two independent journalists, Mushizi Nfundiko Kizito and Omba Kamengele, who were arrested on 25 August 1999 by soldiers of an armed opposition group. They were apparently arrested because they were suspected of using their radio receiver to listen in on sensitive military transmissions. However there are concerns that their arrest might be politically motivated.
