(DRC) LATEST: Suspected members of a feared Islamist militia killed 10 people in the eastern city of Beni overnight, the army said Thursday, prompting an anti-government protest with youths parading a victim’s body in the streets #AceNewsDesk report

An AFP correspondent saw 10 bodies in the morgue of Beni’s general hospital.

Local residents were shocked by the first attack in the Rwangoma district in December 2019.

Angry youths marched on the town hall, carrying a victim’s body and shouting slogans questioning the point of a “state of siege” imposed on May 6 with the aim of quelling ADF violence in North Kivu province as well as Ituri province to the north.

“We thought it was the light at the end of the tunnel, this state of siege,” Rwangoma resident Samuel Kalume told AFP.

“But after 18 months without an attack by the ADF in our neighbourhood, we’re back at square one. It’s very discouraging.”
