Congo frees jailed goats
A minister in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has ordered the release of a dozen goats that were being held illegally in a Kinshasa prison cell.
The deputy justice minister says he was on a routine visit to the prison when he found the goats crammed into a cell with their owners.
The goats themselves were about to face charges of being sold illegally by the roadside.
The justice minister says many police officers have gaps in their knowledge of the law.
