A Congolese human rights group known by its French acronym, CEPADHO stated that rebels from the Allied Democratic Forces in some cases went door-to-door shooting their victims dead.

At least 22 people have been killed by rebel fighters in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), officials have said, the latest in a number of deadly attacks in the region this month, the Aljazeera news agency reported.

The rebels have been trying to pit the civilian population against the army so that people demand the military action be stopped, said Omar Kavotha, president of the rights organization. Insecurity in the area already prompted demonstrators to protest late last month by setting fire to the town hall, AP news agency stated.
