Rebel Fighters Kill 30 In DR Congo

At least 30 civilians are believed to have been killed, reportedly by suspected rebel fighters, in eastern DR Congo.

Suspected rebels killed at least 30 civilians in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo on Saturday night, the army says.

The military blamed Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels for the deaths in the village of Rwangoma near the town of Beni in North Kivu province.

The government and the United Nations have blamed the group for repeated violence in the region.

Dozens of protesters gathered in Beni after the Saturday night attack. Carrying the body of one of those killed, they chanted anti-government slogans, witnesses told AFP news agency.
