Gunmen Attack French Aid Group in Congo

Gunmen attacked a French aid agency in volatile eastern Congo, forcing the charity to suspend operations in the region and evacuate five foreign staff, a spokesman for the aid group said Thursday. The attack on French-run Medecins Sans Frontieres, or Doctors Without Borders, occurred Tuesday at Kabati, 90 miles north of Goma, said Jean-Christophe Dolle, the charity’s director in Goma. Unidentified armed men in uniform looted money, logistical material and a car, but no one was injured, Dolle said.

Dolle said 160 Congolese staff were remaining to “tend to lifesaving procedures only.” Full Story
