Two Catholic priests kidnapped in eastern Congo

The country's bishops have asked the authorities to do everything possible to free them, and dismantle “this criminal network that destabilizes peace in the region.” 

They also recalled that three other priests have been kidnapped in the region since 2012. It is not known who their captors are, as it is an area of great instability in which several armed groups operate.
