ADF Rebels Kill Woman, Burn Houses In Attack On Kilya In DR Congo

According to Meleki Mulala, leader of the civil society in the region, “The assailants carried out a three-pronged attack with the first group laying ambush on a vehicle coming from Kasindi heading to the town of Beni.”

One woman was killed, and three houses and one vehicle burnt down in an attack by Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels on Kilya, the Democratic Republic of Congo. 

According to Meleki Mulala, leader of the civil society in the region, “The assailants carried out a three-pronged attack with the first group laying ambush on a vehicle coming from Kasindi heading to the town of Beni.”

“The second group attacked the population, killing one woman and burning down three houses and one vehicle while the third group targeted a military position in order to forestall any military intervention as they carried out their attacks,” Mulala revealed.

Traffic on the Beni-Kasindi road has been suspended for now by the security services. Travelers who had left Beni and were heading to the border town of Kasindi were stopped from continuing their journey at Kitchanga.
