Militants Kill 23 in Eastern D.R. Congo Village

Suspected militants have killed at least 23 civilians near Beni in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

The villagers were attacked in an overnight raid according to the provincial governor’s statement. The actual number of casualties is still provisional as more bodies are being searched for in Manyama-Moliso, North Kivu.

Local investigators have pointed fingers at terror group, Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) as perpetrators of the attack.

ADF has terrorised eastern DRC for decades and were recently identified as a terrorist organisation after connections were established with Al-Qaeda.

The terror group has constantly attacked civilians in North Kivu region with many leaving the area for safer zones over insecurity.
