Ten civilians murdered in two raids in DRC
The DRC army confirmed the death of ten civilians during two overnight raids in eastern DRC last week.
The attackers presumably belong to the Islamist terrorist group Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), an affiliate of ISIS, which has the primary aim of creating an Islamic Caliphate in Central Africa. In order to achieve this, they often assault, kidnap and kill Christians.
“ADF fighters decapitated eight villagers in the village of Boyo, in the northeast Ituri province, and shot dead two civilians in Kainama,” Lieutenant Jules Ngongo told Agence France Press.
Local sources also notified that houses were burned down during the attack.
