Six civilians and a rebel fighter were killed overnight during an attack by the ADF armed group in the troubled east of the DR Congo, civilian and military sources said on Tuesday.

The attack in the town of Oicha sparked a protest by several thousand conflict-weary residents of nearby Beni, the scene of frequent raids blamed on the Allied Democratic Forces, a Ugandan jihadist group.

“The ADF raided overnight Monday,” Beni administrator Donat Kibwana told AFP. “They were repelled by the army but unfortunately they killed six civilians, and the army killed one ADF (fighter).”

Army spokesman Captain Mak Hazukay confirmed the death toll from the attack, which comes less than four weeks before crucial elections set for December 23 in the vast former Belgian colony.

Jonas Mbulete, a resident of Oicha, which is around 30 kilometres (18 miles) north of Beni, said the assailants burned five homes.

Two other people died Monday during a separate attack blamed on the ADF.

Beni has also borne the brunt of an Ebola outbreak that has claimed 240 lives as of the last health ministry bulletin on Monday.

But some regions have experienced a decrease in population.

These outcomes can be hugely controversial because the size of the local population has important implications for the level of government funding they receive.
