Two Indian Army peacekeepers sustained injuries after 30 heavily armed militants attack their post in the troubled North Kivu province in Congo, but Indian forces managed to kill three of the militants after a fierce gunfight.

According to the UN Spokesperson, the Organization's Stabilization Mission in the DRC (known by its French acronym, MONUSCO) has deployed attack helicopters as well as the Force Intervention Brigade in support of operations and to reinforce its presence.

Hazukay said later that United Nations helicopters were shelling rebel positions inside Virunga National Park as Congolese troops fought to recover a stretch of road from the rebels. The day before, the ADF attacked around 10 motorbike taxis in the locality.
