Suspected Islamist militants have killed at least 10 people in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Local reports say they used axes and machetes to attack civilians in their homes in Bukokoma village, Nord Kivu province, on Thursday evening.

The attackers are thought to be from the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a militia linked to the Islamic State group.

Eastern DR Congo is a hotbed for rival militia who’ve been blamed for attacks that have killed thousands of people.

A similar attack last week in Beni territory left at least nine dead.
