Rebels Hack 13 Civilians to Death

Army of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) disclosed that suspected Ugandan rebels killed 13 civilians in an overnight raid on a village in easterner part of the country, AFP news agency reports.
“We’ve just discovered a total of 13 bodies, cut to death, including four women,” said Lieutenant Mak Hazukay, army spokesman in DR Congo’s Beni region, it reports.
He blamed the attack on the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a Ugandan rebel group based in DR Congo.
The UN accuses the ADF of killing more than 500 civilians in eastern DR Congo since October 2014, AFP reports.
The ADF was formed in 1996 by a puritanical Muslim sect in the Ruwenzori mountains of western Uganda.
