An Indian pilot is being held hostage by Congolese rebels who attacked an aircraft over the weekend, official sources said on Tuesday.

Congolese rebels kidnapped the pilot when they attacked an aircraft on a remote airstrip in the tin mining area of Walikale in the country’s North Kivu province.

Congolese army General Baigwa Dieudonne Amuli has blamed Rwandan Hutu FDLR rebels for the attack, sources said.
