Anger at UN after DR Congo rebels kill 12

At least 12 people were killed when rebels attacked the town of Beni in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Eyewitnesses say men from the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) used machetes to kill people in the city’s Boikene neighbourhood on Tuesday evening.

The Congolese military intervened but the attack has caused a great deal of anger.

ADF rebels also killed 14 people in Beni last week.

People have barricaded roads in the city and have been throwing stones at vehicles belonging to the United Nations, who they accuse of failing to protect them.
