A man and a woman were killed by Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels at PK47 on the Mbau-Kamango highway in Beni territory of North Kivu, DR Congo.
The two; a motorcycle rider and his passenger related to a soldier, were hit by bullets on Wednesday, Jan. 5, while returning from Kamango and heading towards Beni town.
The civil society operatives in Watalinga confirmed the incident and revealed that they had spoken to a witness, a motorcycle rider who escaped from the ADF ambush.
The attack was the latest by the Ugandan ADF rebels recorded in the Kamango, Eringeti and Mbau death triangle, while the Congolese and Ugandan armies have been carrying out joint operations in the zone.
