"On Thursday, about 1,000 members of the Hema ethnic group were killed,
reportedly by fighters of the rival Lendu tribe, during a three-hour
attack on some 15 villages in the Ituri region."

``50,000 people may have been killed in the region since the
war-within-a-war began in 1999,'' said the IRIN report, which described
Ituri as a ``dangerous patchwork of military occupation and control.''
