Goma, DR Congo: Around 20 people have been killed in an attack in eastern DR Congo, with sources blaming rebels affiliated with the Islamic State jihadist group.

“The enemy ADF (Allied Democratic Forces) ambushed farmers at around 4 pm (1400 GMT) on Friday near the village of Enebula,” local civil society leader Patrick Mukohe told AFP by phone.

Enebula said he had counted 21 bodies of men and women at the site of the massacre, some 30 kilometres (20 miles) west of the town of Oicha, in North Kivu province. Jules Kambale, who works in the Oicha hospital morgue, said it had received 19 bodies.
