(Johannesburg = Yonhap News) Correspondent Hyunmin Yoo = Women and girls in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR Congo) were flogged for wearing short skirts or trousers, the Democratic Congolese government said on the 28th (local time).

Prime Minister Jean-Michel Sama Lucondé said in a cabinet document published on the same day that he “condemns the inhuman treatment of the Malacan militia” and promised to punish the perpetrators.

Prime Minister Luconde plans to send a government delegation to the Salamavilla region in the eastern province of Maniema to bring the perpetrators to justice, AFP news agency reported.

The Malaika militia, which strictly enforce Islamic law (Sharia) in the areas they control, is one of dozens of armed groups operating in the mineral-rich eastern Democratic Congo.

Malaika’s militias claim to represent the interests of the people and are demanding that the government hand over a large portion of the proceeds from the Salamavilla gold mine.
