At least 30 killed in troubled eastern DR Congo province

Bunia (DR Congo) (AFP) – At least 30 people were killed overnight in several villages in DR Congo’s eastern province of Ituri, sharpening an ethnic conflict that has already caused tens of thousands to flee, officials said Tuesday.

“We have recorded 30 deaths. There are certainly other bodies out in the bush. A search is underway,” a government official said. Other sources gave a higher toll.
