Nationalist and Integrationist Front
The Nationalist and Integrationist Front (FNI) is a militia group comprised of ethnic Lendu active in the Ituri region of the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. The FNI is also known by its original French name, the Front National Intégrationniste. It is one of six rebel groups in the region. It has been active in the Ituri conflict against ethnic Hema and is blamed for the ambush and murder of nine MONUC peacekeepers near the town of Kafe in February 2005. FNI political leader Floribert Ndjabu was arrested by Congolese authorities, while military head Etienne Lona turned himself in.
