Islamic State claims deadly attack in east Congo's Ebola zone

Islamic State claimed responsibility on Tuesday for a deadly overnight attack in an area of eastern Congo hit by an Ebola epidemic, although its account of the violence differed from local reports.

The deputy mayor of Beni in the eastern Democratic of Congo said 13 civilians were killed late on Monday in an attack by the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) - a group thought to be linked to Islamic State.

“The victims were killed by bullets and others by bladed weapons,” Mayor Modeste Bakwanamaha told Reuters.

In a statement on the messaging website Telegram, Islamic State said it was behind the attack. It said it had targeted the Congolese army in Beni, killing or wounding 25 people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; home grown jihadis, or the "American funded and trained" brand?!?

And why would the US government want a military presence in the Congo?!?

One brief look at the following, and then you will understand:

Google tells us that: "The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is a country with huge natural wealth. Almost every valuable natural resource can be found there, from a multitude of minerals – including diamonds, gold, copper, cobalt, cassiterite (tin ore) and coltan – to timber and oil.Dec 17, 2009"

Now tell me: how could the US government ever let the people of Congo control their own destiny, and their vast natural wealth?!?

The short answer is, it wouldn't.

The following article is very enlightening in this area: How Washington got on board with Congo's rigged election.
