At least 60 people were killed last weekend in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo during attacks blamed on Rwandan Hutu rebels, the country's UN mission said, almost doubling its last toll.

The midweek tally given by the UN mission known as MONUC was 35, with another two dozen reported injured in the bloody rampage after inspectors descended on Busurungi, a Nord-Kivu village located near Sud-Kivu province.
