Three civilians were killed and two vehicles burnt by Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels in Kalembo, on the Beni-Kasindi road, Ruwenzori sector of Beni territory in North Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
One of the victims was the driver of one of the two vehicles burnt during the attack on Thursday, Nov. 4. The attack targeted civilian vehicles of Mark Fuso that were coming from the border area of Kasindi heading to Beni town.
According to civil society sources in the Ruwenzori sector, the assailants looted goods from shops and private residences before setting the vehicles ablaze.
In the disarray that followed, two civilians were shot dead. Traffic on the Beni-Kasindi highway was suspended before resuming in the evening.
The attack was the latest by ADF rebels in Kalembo village, after a similar one that led to 18 deaths last month.
