DR Congo: Clashes with Ugandan rebels leave 13 dead

BENI, (AA): Thirteen people, including seven Congolese soldiers and two civilians, were killed on Thursday in clashes between Ugandan Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels and Congolese army forces in the eastern part of the country.

“A two-hour clash took place this morning between army forces and Ugandan rebels who attacked military positions in Mamove,” a military source told Anadolu Agency.

Four rebels were killed and another was captured, the source added.

The ADF, which has been based in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since 1995, is comprised of several armed groups opposed to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.

Since 2014, ADF rebels have carried out multiple attacks in eastern DRC leaving more than 450 people dead, according to Human Rights Watch.
