ADF Rebels Set 4 Vehicles Ablaze In Mighende Village, DR Congo

Allied Democratic Forces rebels in DR Congo continue to perpetrate economic sabotage when they attacked another set of trucks belonging to business owners in the country.

Rebels of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) on Tuesday, April 19, burnt down four vehicles during an ambush in Mighende village on the Beni-Kasindi highway of Beni territory in North Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The vehicles, which included two heavy duty trucks, belonged to businessmen who were travelling from the border town of Kasindi to Beni town when they were attacked by armed rebels firing indiscriminately.

No loss of lives was recorded as the businessmen escaped into nearby bushes.

Local civil society sources said soldiers of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) who arrived to intervene were able to salvage some goods from the vehicles. 

Movement on the Beni-Kasindi highway which was interrupted after the incident on Tuesday resumed Wednesday, April 20.

This incident was the latest attack on the village of Mighende by ADF rebels from Uganda.
