SOUTH AFRICA: The 20 men accused of plotting a coup in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) will appear in the Pretoria Regional Court today.
Last week, the court formally charged 19 DRC rebels with plotting to stage a coup in their home country.
The group was arrested on February 5 in a pre-dawn raid in Limpopo.
A man believed to be the ring-leader of the group was arrested on February 8 in Cape Town.
The men are accused of preparing to receive military training to topple DRC president Joseph Kabila.
Prosecutor Shaun Abrahams told the court they intended on unseating President Kabila unconstitutionally.
