    Dozens of fighters from an armed group known as Mai-Mai went into the northeastern city of Butembo in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and fought with security forces on Wednesday.

    Their target was an Ebola treatment centre. This comes as the region experiences a violent uprising and armed groups try to turn efforts to fight Ebola into a political tool.
