African Chart Zone reports: "DR Congo summons Rwanda's Ambassador and suspends RwandAir flights to DR Congo following their accusation, that Rwanda is supporting M23 rebels carrying out attacks in its eastern borderlands.

"Rwanda accused DR Congo of hurting civilians and destroying properties in North Rwanda. Following a rocket shelling from DR Congo.

"Rwanda also said some of its troops were kidnapped by rebels as its feud with DR Congo worsens."

Several civilians have been killed by rebel fighters in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), according to the country’s army and civil society groups.

A spokesman for the DRC army told the AFP news agency that “more than a dozen” people have been killed in Saturday’s attack, while the Red Cross put the death toll at 24.

The killings took place in a village in the Beni region in North Kivu province, army spokesperson Anthony Mualushayi told AFP.

“We heard bullets at dawn in the village of Beu Manyama. When we arrived, it was already too late because the enemy ADF had already killed more than a dozen of our fellow citizens with machetes,” he said.

The Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) have been accused of killing thousands of civilians in DRC’s troubled east.


After the attack, soldiers pursued the attackers and “neutralised seven ADF” and captured another, Mualushayi said.

Local Red Cross head Philippe Bonane put the civilian death toll at 24.

The massacre comes after almost a month of relative calm in Beni, where the Congolese and Ugandan armies have been conducting joint military operations against the ADF since late November.

On Friday another Red Cross representative said that soldiers in the neighbouring Ituri province had found 17 decapitated bodies, also believed to be victims of the ADF.
