Local authorities suspect a Ugandan Islamic terror group has killed nearly 50 people within the past week in the predominantly Christian eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
On May 6, attackers killed about 13 people in the province of Ituri, including two members of a local mission, Church on the Rock. Two days earlier, some assailants carrying machetes and axes killed as many as 34 civilians in a late-night attack, according to World Watch Monitor. Official figures revealed eight women, two of them pregnant, and four children died in the attack.
