Reports and video show two UN investigators were captured, led into a field, and then shot execution style. Michael Sharp, a U.S. citizen, and Zaida Catalan, a Swedish citizen, had been commissioned by the U.N. Security Council to investigate a new rebellion in Kasaï-Central Province that had pocked the area with suspected mass graves. Zaida Catalan, Green Party Politician and Leader of the Young Greens of Sweden.
This happened in the Democratic Republic of Congo around March 2017 and the video surfaced April 2017 when their dead bodies were confirmed. Zaida Catalan was a prominent member of the Green Political Party in Sweden. Michael J. Sharp was a humanitarian missionary and collaborated as a program coordinator for the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) and the United Nations.
The U.N investigators were supposedly volunteers looking into reports of human rights violations in the DRC.
