At least 21 people were killed, 40 wounded and dozens of houses burned in weekend attacks aimed at Hutus in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the United Nations said on Monday, expressing alarm at rising ethnic violence. U.N. spokesman Amouzoun Codjo Martin said the weekend attacks were carried out by members of two militias, the Nande-dominated UPDI and the NDC, which is mostly made up of Nyanga, another local ethnic group. The fighting had reached an "alarming level", the U.N. said in a statement, and could cause "large-scale violence" in the region, as well as displacement of civilians. Tue, 09 Feb 2016 02:32:11 -0500
