"Yesterday morning, the inhabitants of the hill Muhindo saw two police officers trying to hide: they were suspected of theft and when they wanted to talk to them, a police began to fire his gun. The inhabitants of the hill responded by throwing stones at the two police officers (...) that are finally dead stoned by the angry mob.
