Reprieve for jailed goats

A minister in the Democratic Republic of Congo has ordered a Kinshasa jail
to release a dozen goats.

Deputy Justice Minister Claude Nyamugabo said he found the goats just in
time during a routine jail visit.

The beasts were due to appear in court, charged with being sold illegally
by the roadside, reports the BBC.

The minister said many police had serious gaps in their knowledge and
they would be sent for retraining.

Mr Nyamugabo was conducting a routine visit to the prison when, he said,
he was astonished to discover not only humans, but a herd of goats
crammed into a prison cell in the capital.

He has blamed the police for the incident. It is not clear what will happen
to the owners of the goats, who have also been imprisoned.
