GOMA, Democratic Republic of Congo (Reuters) - The bodies of 26 people believed killed after an ambush last week in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo have been discovered, most of them with their hands tied and their necks broken, a local chief said on Sunday.

The victims disappeared last Sunday after they were ambushed by militants on a main road in North Kivu's restive Beni territory, where more than 800 people were killed in dozens of massacres between 2014 and 2016.
