“The FDLR rebels shot at the victims who were going to their farms,” the statement said.

According to the same source, several localities where thousands of internally displaced persons are residing, were burnt last week by the FDLR rebels.

“For these rebels, the attacks were a response to the defeat they suffered under the hands of Mayi-Mayi, a local militia group operating in the same territory,” CEPADHO continued.

Absence of the army in certain localities in North Kivu province has sometimes encouraged armed groups to carry out attacks against civilians. Enditem
