Islamist militants massacre dozens of villagers in Congo

At least 53 villagers have been killed in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo’s Ituri province, by Islamist militants, a local official said on Thursday.
The authorities blamed the attacks on Tuesday and Wednesday on the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a Ugandan armed group active in eastern Congo since the 1990s.
The militia has killed more than 1,000 civilians since the start of 2019, according to U.N. figures, despite repeated military campaigns aimed at destroying it.
