"A military official says that more than two dozen civilians have been killed in a series of attacks by a feared militia in eastern Congo. Col. Sylvain Ekenge said Wednesday that Rwandan Hutu fighters killed at least 26 people in attacks since New Year's. However, a local official told Congolese radio that the death toll may be as high as 41. Ekenge said at least 13 were wounded in the Jan. 2-4 attacks in the South Kivu province." (01/04/12)
