The UN Human Rights Council launched an international investigation into killings and other atrocities in the Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The 47-member Geneva forum adopted by consensus a resolution brought by African countries which also called on the Kinshasa government to cooperate with the team of international experts.

UN rights chief Zeid Al-Hussein has called repeatedly for the inquiry and said that a militia linked to government has committed a string of ethnically-motivated attacks in recent months.
