The United Nations said on Wednesday two Tanzanian army officers serving as UN peacekeepers were killed and 13 others were injured after they were attacked by rebels in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR Congo).

The UN said in a statement issued in the commercial capital Dar es Salaam that four other peacekeepers were reported missing.

The deaths of the two army officers bring to five the number of Tanzanian peacekeepers who have been killed in the DR Congo in the past two years.

The statement said the army officers were killed when a UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) convoy was ambushed and came under fire from suspected Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) elements in Beni territory at North Kivu.
