Eyes on Persecution congo

Kinshasa (Agenzia Fides) – At least nine people have been killed in North Kivu, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, in a new attack of the ADF-NALU, group of Ugandan origin that now calls itself Muslim Defense International (MDI).
According to a statement from the Centre d’Etude pour la Promotion de la Paix, de la Démocratie et les Droits de l’homme (CEPADHO), sent to Agenzia Fides, on Saturday, September 5, a commando of the ADF attacked some locations in the territory Beni. In Ntoyi a mother of 11 children was decapitated as she was returning from the fields; in Ngite other 4 farmers were found killed; in Mukida a couple, parents of seven children, were killed, in PK25 the bodies of two other people were found brutally murdered with machetes.
The CEPADHO fears that the toll is expected to grow because many farmers work in the fields and may have been victims of the assault of the ADF terrorists.
Local bishops and civil society (see Fides 26/05/2015) have repeatedly denounced the presence of this group which has now taken the form of a real jihadist organization. The members of the ADF, also known as MDI, who come from Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania, Rwanda, Sudan, Burundi, Central African Republic and Congo, have been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of civilians in the space of just under a year (see Fides 09/06/2015).
