A "large number" of UN peacekeepers were killed or wounded in an attack in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo's North Kivu province late on Thursday, a senior UN official said on Twitter on Friday.

"Our thoughts and prayers with families and our colleagues in MONUSCO (peacekeeping mission). Reinforcements are on scene and medical evacuations by mission ongoing," Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping, wrote.
