Seven DRC Soldiers Sentenced To Death For Cowardice

Seven soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have been sentenced to death for cowardice, reported BBC.

The soldiers allegedly ran away from advancing M23 rebels, retreating through the town of Sake where they allegedly killed two people by recklessly discharging their arms.

Lawyers for the soldiers said they would appeal the decision handed down by a court in the east of the central African country.

Last November, three other soldiers were convicted of cowardice and sentenced to death.

However, in DRC, death sentences are commuted to life imprisonment.
