CWN Editor's Note: A Catholic nun is one of at least seven people who were killed in a terrorist attack in the Democratic Republic of Congo this week; an unknown number of people were also taken hostage.

The attack, which occurred on the night of October 19 in the village of Maboya, has been attributed to a Ugandan group connected wit the Islamic State. The Congolese army reported the capture of four members of the group.
