Nine civilians were killed when suspected members of a notorious Ugandan Islamist group stormed a village in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo this week, UN peacekeepers have said.

“The attack took place during the night of the 8th to 9th October when the rebels invaded the town of Oicha and killed nine people belonging to two families, including the children,” the United Nations’ Monusco peacekeeping mission said in a statement.

The attacks in the restive North Kivu province forced between 3,000 and 5,000 people to flee towards Beni, 30 kilometres to the south.
