BUNIA: Forty-six Pygmies have been massacred in eastern DR Congo’s Ituri province by the notorious Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) militia, local sources said on Friday.
“ADF rebels overran the village of Abembi” on Thursday, said Gili Gotabo, a local NGO leader, adding “Forty-six people died and two were wounded, all of them from the Pygmy community.”
The province’s interior minister, Adjio Gigi, confirmed the toll and also blamed the ADF, which has been accused of hundreds of killings in the past year.
