Congo: Mai mai fighters kidnap 10 civilians in Kivu


Congo mai mai militia is said to have kidnapped ten people after a raid organized on the night of Friday, July 10, at Biriba, Bukondo and Buhimba in Walikale territory (North Kivu).

Eyewitnesses told Radio Okapi that the attackers also looted property of the population before retreating into the forest.

The militia reportedly took advantage of the absence of the military in the country to organize their attack which forced residents to flee their homes to neighbouring hills.
