Dozens killed in fresh massacre in DR Congo's Ituri: local officials

Dozens of people have been killed in a new massacre in two villages in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s troubled northeastern Ituri region, local officials and residents said. They said the massacre was carried out on Friday by militiamen from the ethnic Lendu community in the villages of Drodro and Largo, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) north of the regional capital of Bunia. An AFP journalist saw one body at Drodro, and about a dozen more at Largo. At least 150 people were killed in massacres in the same two villages on April 3. Inter-ethnic massacres between the minority Hema and the majority Lendu in Ituri have claimed the lives of 50,000 people since 1999 and displaced half a million others. Full Story
