8 People Killed by Suspected Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) in DR Congo

The Police Said at Least 20 People are Still Missing after the Attack


At least eight people were killed in an attack in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) on Friday.

The police said suspected Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) fighters attacked a village in the Beni region, slitting throats of the eight people.

About twenty other people are reported missing. Major Losendjola Morisho, a police chief in Mangina, said a search to rescue the missing people is ongoing.

The country has experienced several months of attacks and massacres blamed on the rebel forces.

More than a thousand people have been killed in the attacks since October 2014.
