7 January 2003 – Congolese death row inmates

A firing squad riddled 15 convicts full of holes in a secret execution in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A group of inmates on death row in Kinshasa jail were removed from their cells and decamped to a military area near to Ndjili airport. A day later on 7 January 2003 they were shot at dawn and buried in a mass grave in the area. Their crimes have not been made public.
