MOSCOW (Sputnik) – At least 45 people were found killed in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo’s (DR Congo) Beni city, media reported Sunday.
The information was confirmed by city’s Mayor Nyonyi Bwanakawa, Xinhua news agency reported.
"The terrorist massacre happening at the moment in the east is not different from what happened in Mali, France, Somalia and other corners of the world," Kabila said in North Kivu’s capital of Goma, as quoted by the news outlet.
DR Congo’s spokesman Mak Hazukay said that authorities suspect the Allied Democratic Forces armed group of having committed the massacre.
DR Congo has been mired in civil conflicts and violence since the Rwanda and Uganda backed a coup against Mobutu Sese Seko.
