Suspected ADF Rebels Kill 21 In Democratic Republic Of Congo

Latest violence comes amid tensions between DR Congo and Rwanda over M23, another rebel group.

At least 21 people were killed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the latest attack attributed to the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels on Saturday morning, a local civil society group said.
The incident took place in the village of Beu-Manyama, 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) north of the Mamove town in the Beni territory of North Kivu province, Kinos Katuho, head of the Mamove civil society group, told reporters.
The attackers killed residents in their homes with machetes and bullets, Katuho said.
Last year, Congolese President Felix Tshisekedi authorized the Ugandan army to hunt down the ADF in Beni and Irumu territories but the joint operations are yet to curb the violence.
Meanwhile, the Democratic Republic of the Congo announced Saturday the suspension of RwandAir flights to the country amid escalating tensions with Rwanda.
The decision came on the heels of allegations that Rwanda is backing M23 rebels in recently renewed fighting in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Rwanda has denied the allegations.
"In view of the support of Rwanda to the M23 terrorists, it was decided to immediately suspend RwandAir flights to our country ... a warning to the Rwandan government which is disrupting the peace process," said Patrick Muyaya, Congolese minister for communication and media.
There was no immediate comment from Kigali. But, Rwanda's flag carrier RwandAir said in a statement that it had canceled all flights to three Congolese cities, including Kinshasa, Lubumbashi, and Goma.
Muyaya also said the government has designated the M23 as a terrorist group. -
