Fugitive DRC policeman accuses chief of rights activist's murder

A fugitive policeman has accused DR Congo's former police chief of ordering the assassination of a human rights activist. Paul Mwilambwe says he witnessed Floribert Chebeya being suffocated by colleagues in early June 2010 and accuses then chief of police, General John Numbi, of giving the order. Mwilambwe is one of four police officers to have been sentenced to death for the murder but he alleges that it was in fact the General behind the killing, acting on President Joseph Kabila's orders.
