Three UN staff members were wounded on Wednesday when their convoy was attacked by rebels in the Mambassa area, Lubero territory, North Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

According to the UN, unidentified attackers opened fire on the convoy which was being escorted by ‘blue helmets’ from the UN Stabilization Mission in the DRC (MONUSCO) in the Mambassa.

Instability is rife and dozens of armed groups operate freely in the area.

A video of an attack on trucks carrying UN vehicles in the same area surfaced online. In the 30-second video, a group of men can be seen lying in wait for trucks.
