One of the suspected robbers who tried to break into a Chinese UN peacekeeping compound in the eastern DRC.

Two suspected robbers were quickly arrested after they scaled the security fence surrounding a Chinese UN peacekeeping base in the South Kivu city of Bukavu in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The incident took place last Thursday when the assailants triggered alarm systems wired to the fence that prompted a search by heavily armed blue-helmeted PLA soldiers.
