U.N. Troops’ Bodies Sent Home to Bangladesh
The bodies of nine slain Bangladeshi peacekeepers began their journey home from eastern Congo.
As bagpipes played, soldiers loaded the coffins into the back of a United Nations cargo plane at an airstrip ringed by U.N. and Bangladeshi flags flying at half-staff.
Militiamen in the volatile Ituri district ambushed the soldiers on Friday. Some Congolese said the killings should spur the international community to send more soldiers.
