by Africa News

At least 14 civilians were killed on Saturday in two attacks attributed to the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) where operations by the Congolese and Ugandan armies are struggling to impose peace.

“The ADF attacked the locality of Mamove on Saturday morning. The toll is nine civilians killed: six women and three men, two other people are wounded and two houses are burned,” said Kinos Katuo, president of the local civil society.

“We have alerted the army, but so far no offensive has been launched, leaving the enemy free to roam around looting and killing,” he added.
