Ugandan rebel kills three in DR Congo

Uganda’s Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) killed three people in the latest attack in the Ituri region in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s north Kivu province, local media have reported Saturday.

“Three civilians were killed in a new attack by the Allied Democratic Forces fighters late Friday in the village of Mbingi, west of the city of Oicha, in Beni territory. All the victims, including a woman, were beheaded,” Actualite.cd quoted Kinos Katuho, head of a local civil society group.

The killings occurred  at 9 p.m. local time (2000GMT).

Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (FARDC) pursued the attackers, according to media reports.

It is the another attack blamed on ADF rebels this week in the area.

Rebels murdered two civilians in Mabatundu village later Thursday.

FARDC launched an offensive strategy against the ADF at the end of October.

The rebels have been accused of killing more than 1,000 people in the Beni area in the northern part of North Kivu since 2014.

According to CSOs, rebels murdered about 150 civilians between November and December in reprisal attacks.

The attacks on civilians triggered some demonstrations in Beni in December, where locals blamed the UN peacekeeping force, MONUSCO, for failing to protect their lives.
