DRC: Officials Report 42 Deaths After ADF Attack on Same Day Shipwreck Killed 80 Passengers

HeadlineJun 13, 2024

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, officials say at least 42 people were killed by suspected rebels with the Allied Democratic Forces in the eastern province of North Kivu.

This comes as more than 80 people were killed in a shipwreck on the Kwa River. The DRC has far fewer paved roads than other nations, leading residents to more frequently travel by boat, often in unsafe conditions.
