#BreakingNews 64 Hacked to Death by Rebels in Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa - Please PRAY


At least 64 people were hacked to death on Saturday, August 13, 2016  in northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Africa. The attack was carried out by suspected rebels. It occurred Saturday night in the town's Rwangoma district. DRC troops and local officials found 64 bodies, but the number could rise. Reports said the victims were "hacked to death". The DRC troops blamed the attack on the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a Ugandan rebel group. The rebels were wearing army uniforms and are killing in revenge" for military operations in the area. The attack happened a week after 14 people were killed in another attack near Beni. ADF troops were also suspected of carrying out that attack. The group has been accused of human rights abuses and is thought to be involved and funded by kidnappings, smuggling and logging.Since October 2014 attacks have left in total more than 600 civilians dead. Please Pray....
Pope Francis prayed for the victims... 
“My thoughts go to the people of North Kivu, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, who have been recently hit with fresh massacres,” – the Holy Father continued – “which have for some time been perpetrated in shameful silence, without attracting even as much as our attention. Unfortunately, they are part of the too many innocent people who have no weight on world opinion.” “May Mary obtain for all people sentiments of compassion and understanding and the desire for peace and harmony!”
