Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels have killed not less than 10 civilians in Urouro and Opira villages in Mayimoya, Beni territory of North Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
According to the president of the Mayimoya civil society, Patrick Musubao, six persons were killed on Saturday, June 11, while four others were killed before midday on Sunday, June 12.
Musubao explained that the deceased are natives of Oicha, Kokola, and Eringeti agglomerations. He said some of them were killed in an ambush while they were returning to their homes.
There are concerns that more casualties would be recorded as several persons have been reported missing after the ambush.
This is the latest killing in the zone where there are contingents of the UN Blue Helmets and soldiers of the DR Congo national army, FARDC.
