WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States sanctioned a senior general in the Democratic Republic of Congo armed forces and three rebel leaders on Monday, days after the U.N. Security Council blacklisted them for being a threat to the peace and stability of the country.

Those sanctioned included Brigadier General Muhindo Akili Mundos of the DRC armed forces and Gedeon Kyungu Mutanga, Guidon Shimiray Mwissa and Lucien Nzabamwita of three rebel factions.
