At Least 50 Dead in Two Attacks in Eastern DR Congo

At least 50 people were killed overnight in two new attacks in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s deeply troubled east, monitors said Monday.

A local official blamed the notorious ADF militia, which has been linked to the Islamic State group, but others said the attacks may have been ethnic in origin.

Citing a provisional toll, the Kivu Security Tracker said 28 people had been killed in Boga and 22 in Tchabi, villages lying about six miles apart in an area known for Allied Democratic Forces attacks and community friction.
