Kinshasa - A feud between Rwandan Hutu rebels and the Mai Mai militia in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) last week left more than 100 people dead, including civilians, a local activist said on Tuesday.

"A week ago, the Mai Mai attacked the FLDR (Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda), who retaliated by targeting everybody they could find, accusing them of collaborating with the Mai Mai," Nord-Kivu province civil society coordinator Omar Kavota said.
