Two Congolese pastors were among the seven Christians killed in attacks by an Islamist militant group in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo earlier this month.

Six Christians, including Rev. Kausa Kaule Yosua and his daughter, 27-year-old Masika, were killed in the 10 and 11 November attacks by members of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) on two villages near Beni, in the northeast of the central-African country. They also kidnapped 13 people, adults and children, a local source told World Watch Monitor.

Among those kidnapped was a pastor, Rev. Josias Kapanga Katembo from Boyikene village, whose body was later found in the forest, bringing the death toll to seven.
