At least 21, including women and children, killed in Congo's east
At least 21 people, including women and a baby, were killed over the weekend in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the U.N. peacekeeping mission there said on Monday. Most of those killed appeared to have been hacked to death on Friday and Saturday in villages not far from Beni, in Congo's North Kivu province, according to a statement by Martin Kobler, head of the MONUSCO peacekeeping mission. It was not clear who was responsible for the killings, but they highlighted the challenge facing Congo's army and U.N. forces pacifying Congo's east despite the defeat of M23 rebels, the most serious uprising in years.
