DR Congo: Suspected Rebels Kill 16 People
The ambush took place in the east of the country
Suspected members of a militant group in the Democratic Republic of Congo have shot dead 16 people who were returning from a weekly market.
The ambush took place in the east of the country.
Hospital officials in the town of Oicha say the victims include six women and a child.
The attackers are believed to belong to the Allied Democratic Forces – one of several militias operating in eastern Congo.
The group is accused of having killed hundreds of civilians since the Congolese army launched an operation against them last year.
