Islamist militants of the Allied Democratic Forces kill nineteen people near the city of Oicha in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, following a week's worth of protests against the mass killings from rebels that killed four others near a United Nations base.
Protestors storm the MONUSCO headquarters in Beni, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and set UN vehicles on fire in anger at the peacekeepers' failure to stop the Allied Democratic Forces insurgency. Congolese security forces fire at the crowd to disperse them, killing at least two.
The Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo announces it has "neutralized" the leader of an offshoot of a Hutu militia, the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda, in another blow to a "weakened group".
Suspected Allied Democratic Forces militants in North Kivu, DR Congo, kill at least 15 United Nations peacekeepers, mostly Tanzanian, and five Congolese soldiers, and wound 53 other people. An unknown number of the rebels are killed. Over 90 peacekeepers have been killed since the mission started in 1999.
