UN mission in DRC commonly known as MONUSCO responded with aerial bombardments to repulse the attackers.

This forced hundreds of ADF fighters to flee the town and abort their intended massive damage.

The DRC-Uganda border was temporarily closed to stop ADF remnants from sneaking into Uganda as they fled from Kamango.

This is the second time in this year that ADF are striking near the Uganda border, displacing thousands to refugee camps, massacring and looting goods.

Recently, they attacked and beheaded 21 civilians in North Kivu, the latest massacre to haunt the war-torn country.

The United Nations mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) responded by sending attack helicopters and manned foot patrols into the country’s strife-torn North Kivu province in the wake of the bloodbath.

UN said it discovered the bodies of 21 civilians brutally slaughtered, including babies, children and women, some mutilated, others raped.

Troops from the UN Mission of Stabilisation in the DRC (MONUSCO) found the bodies in Musuku village in the Rwenzori area of Beni sector.

It was believed that the National Army for the Liberation of Uganda (NALU) had teamed up with the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), to continue their terror over North Kivu for years.

Once again, as their style has been, it is said that at Kamango today, the victims were killed with machetes.

Other rebel groups in North Kivu, include Mayi Mayi and the Democratic Liberation Forces of Rwanda (FDLR).

Led by Al Qaeda-trained Jamil Mukulu, the ADF group is known for brutality and conscription of minors. Attempts to seize western Uganda in the 1990s met stiff resistance from the UPDF.

Their latest attack come only a short while after the DRC government signed a peace deal with M23 rebels after repeated clashes with the army supported by a MONUSCO intervention force.

Chimpreports is still trying, without success, to reach army spokesperson, Lt Col Paddy Ankunda, to get his comment on the attack.
