KINSHASA - More than 100 people were killed after two boats collided on Tuesday night on a river in the Equateur province of the Democratic Republic of Congo, a survivor said on Friday.
Alfred Lompaka said the boats were carrying more than 200 people and so far, about 83 survivors have been counted.
Lompaka said one of the boats, a local construction made by attaching three large motorised canoes together to transport more passengers and produce, was sailing in the dark without lights and collided with another boat, also without lights.
