At least two people were brutally killed with machetes and another seven were abducted by Rwandan rebels in an attack attributed to the FDLR (Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda), that since 1994 preside the forests of the east Democratic Republic of Congo. As reported by Radio Okapi of the United Nations peace mission in DR-Congo (MONUC), the attack took place in Iyembe, in South Kivu, a hide-out of the militias that 11 years ago fled to DR-Congo after involvement in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Also three women and a child are among the abducted. The Congolese troops - for months engaged in an operation with MONUC peacekeepers to hunt down the FDLR - found a 2-year-old boy tied to a tree still alive. According to the Radio, the attack occurred on Monday night. In the last episode of violence in the zone twenty days ago, at least 25 civilians were killed and another dozen injured in an attack on the village of Kanyola, a few dozen kilometres south of Bukavu, capital of South Kivu. The attack was attributed to the particularly violent 'Rasta' Rwandan rebel group that emerged recently.
