10 civilians killed in militia attack in eastern DRCongo: local official

Beni (DR Congo) (AFP) – Ten civilians were killed in an attack in eastern DR Congo blamed on an Islamist-rooted armed group based in Uganda, a local official said Wednesday.

Members of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) crossed the border from Uganda late on Tuesday, and “killed 10 civilians, some with knives and others with firearms,” Donat Kibwana, local administrator in the restive Beni region, told AFP.
