Rwanda threatens to limit cooperation with the United Nations after a report accused the country of war crimes in neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Suspected Islamist militants kill 13 people during raids on two villages in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, the army and a village chief report. It is the latest of such attacks that the United Nations says may be war crimes. The Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) have killed more than 1,000 people since 2019, according to UN figures.
The High Commissioner for Human Rights of the United Nations, Michelle Bachelet, says that more than 1,300 civilians have been killed in recent months and half a million displaced in three provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo amid a resurgence of attacks on the civilian population by different armed groups. Bachelet says these attacks "may amount to crimes against humanity and war crimes".
Israel asks the United Nations to disavow the Goldstone Report after the report's author, Judge Richard Goldstone, says that he retracts the accusation that Israel intentionally targeted civilians during the 2008–2009 Gaza War.
The United Nations publishes a toned down version of its report into war crimes said to have occurred in the Democratic Republic of the Congo during the 1990s after Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi rejected the report's findings.
