ADF Rebels Kill Civilians With Machete In New Attack On DR Congo Villages

The ADF rebel group killed at least eight people during a fresh attack on several villages in the Beni territory of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

At least eight civilians were killed on Sunday, March 20, when rebels of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) attacked Mayi Baridi, Kumbukumbu, and Kiravo villages to the west of Eringeti in Beni territory of North Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo

The attack took place from the night of Saturday March 19, to Sunday  and according to local eyewitnesses, the victims were killed with machetes.

Patrick Musubao, the leader of the civil society in the zone, revealed that eight corpses arrived on Monday March 21, in the Eringeti health centre mortuary.

“The casualty figures may rise because some other persons are still yet to be accounted for since the attack,” Musubao said.
