Forty Killed in Landslide in Eastern Congo
Forty Killed in Landslide in Eastern Congo. A mudflow in the Democratic Republic of Congo has cost about 40 people. Probably the landslide is caused by heavy rain.
That says a deputy governor of the northern province of Ituri. According to the first reports, the disaster was near a fishing village located on the Albert Lake.
Heavy rain harasses the middle of Africa more often around this time of the year.
In recent years, earthquakes and volcanic activities have caused several landslides in the Congo. In 2010, 19 were killed, and in 2002, 50 were killed in similar incidents.
Earlier this week, Sierra Leone already killed 300 deaths. 600 people will be missing.
