Mission in DRC attacked by jihadists


The attack was reportedly carried out by members of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), an affiliate of ISIS whose primary aim is to create an Islamic Caliphate in Central Africa.


According to Reuters, the U.N. peacekeeping mission in the DRC “has deployed around 12,000 troops to contain violence by more than 120 armed groups in the east of the country.”

The largest of these groups is the ADF, which in March was designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the United States and categorized as ISIS-DRC.
