Six suspected rebels on trial for DR Congo massacre

Suspected members of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a partly Islamist militia of Ugandan origin blamed for the death of hundreds of civilians in eastern DRC, attend a public hearing for their trial in Beni on August 20, 2016Six suspected members of a Ugandan rebel group went before a Congolese military court on Saturday, accused of taking part in the killing last weekend of 51 people, the latest in a string of massacres in the restive east of the country. The gruesome slaying in the town of Beni touched off mass street protests against the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo for failing to protect the population from the armed rebel groups that plague the region. The men accused in the slaughter are “two Ugandans, one Tanzanian and three Congolese,” said colonel Jean-Paulin Esosa, who presides over the operational military court of North Kivu province.
