DRC drown­ing death toll ris­ing

Weekend Argus (Sunday Edition) - - AFRICA -

KIN­SHASA: Drown­ing deaths in floods in and around the cap­i­tal of the Demo­cratic Repub­lic of Congo could rise above the 33 so far re­ported, as this num­ber rep­re­sents only the bod­ies brought to the morgue, says Do­minique Weloli, the pro­vin­cial health min­is­ter.

The UN-backed Ra­dio Okapi was told by wit­nesses that among the vic­tims were five chil­dren from the same fam­ily who drowned on Wed­nes­day. – African News Agency/ANA
