More than 110 civilians have been killed in the Beni region bordering Uganda since November 5 in Beni territory. Beni is located in North Kivu province, which borders Rwanda and Uganda.

About 60 people who fled the ADF attackers are now being treated at Beni’s main hospital, suffering from horrific wounds and trauma, a source noted.

Foreign staff have pulled out of DR Congo’s Ebola-hit east after armed rebels tried to break into one of its medical facilities.

Beni have a face series of protests against the UN peacekeeping mission MONUSCO and security forces for not combating rebel attacks in the region.
