At least 40 civilians have been killed in an attack on a village in the restive east of the Democratic Republic of Congo, a non-governmental agency said on Thursday.
"Up to this morning we have found more than 40 bodies, all of them civilians, in the latrines," Teddy Kataliko, the head of civil society in the Beni region where the attack took place, told AFP. "Teams from the Red Cross and the police are searching to see if they find other victims." The attack, which has been blamed on Ugandan rebels, has also left "dozens" of people seriously wounded, he said.
