DR Congo militia on attacks

The pro-government militia in the Democratic Republic of Congo has said that it killed nearly one-hundred Rwandan soldiers earlier this month in the east of the country.

A statement by the leader of the Mai-Mai militia, General Padiri Kalendo, said his forces had killed ninety-three Rwandans and six white mercenaries in the village of Nyanga Walikale.

It said the fighting took place after Rwandan soldiers attacked a Mai-Mai stronghold in an attempt to capture General Kalendo.

The statement, broadcast on state television, said hundreds of Congolese civilians were injured during the fighting.
