Two men convicted over the assassination of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s President Laurent Kabila 20 years ago have been pardoned.
Although Mr Kabila was shot by his bodyguard, two of his senior officials, Col Eddy Kapend and Georges Leta, were implicated in the killing.
President Félix Tshisekedi commuted their death sentences last June.
The pardon comes amid a rift between Mr Tshisekedi and his predecessor, Laurent Kabila’s son Joseph. (BBC)
