Democratic Republic of Congo: 8 killed in Ugandan Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebel attack on army base in Beni
Eight people were killed on Monday during an attack attributed to Ugandan Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels in the restive eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, according to sources.
The attack targeted an army position in Kabasewa, 60km east of Beni in North Kivu province.
“We deplore the death of three soldiers, while three others are wounded,” said Captain Mak Hazukay, spokesman for the army in the region, adding that two rebels were also killed.
He said the attackers “looted the health centre pharmacy”, took cattle, and made the villagers carry their stolen goods.
