Democratic Republic of the Congo: Clashes with Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels leave 13 dead
Thirteen people, including seven Congolese soldiers and two civilians, were killed on Thursday in clashes between Ugandan Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels and Congolese army forces in the eastern part of the country.
“A two-hour clash took place this morning between army forces and Ugandan rebels who attacked military positions in Mamove,” a military source told Anadolu Agency.
Four rebels were killed and another was captured, the source added.
The ADF, which has been based in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since 1995, is comprised of several armed groups opposed to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.
