The members of the Security Council condemned in the strongest terms the attack perpetrated today by a Mayi-Mayi armed group in Butembo, North Kivu, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which led to the death of a South African peacekeeper of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) and of a Congolese police officer, as well as the injuries of two other South African peacekeepers.

The members of the Security Council called on the Government of the DRC to swiftly investigate these attacks and bring the perpetrators to justice. They underlined that attacks targeting peacekeepers may constitute war crimes under international law.
