Seventeen people have been killed in two attacks by the ADF militant group in the troubled Beni region of eastern DR Congo, a local mayor said Friday.
Explosions were heard overnight in Paida, according to local civil society representative Kizito Bin Hangi.
"We are searching for ADF (fighters)," Captain Mak Hazukay said.
The government has often blamed the group for killings, robberies and kidnappings, but sometimes it is unclear who the true assailants are.
