BUKAVU, Congo — More than 30 civilians were burned alive when an armed gang herded them into their huts in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and set them on fire, the U.N. mission said Monday.

"More than 30 civilians, mostly women, were killed and about 50 wounded" in the attack on Saturday night on Ntulumamba village, about 70 kilometers to the northwest of the border town of Bukavu in Sud-Kivu province, the spokesman for the U.N. mission MONUC Kemal Saiki said.
