At least six killed, 150 wounded in southeast Congo ethnic violence


KINSHASA At least six people were killed and 150 wounded in clashes between Pygmies and Bantus this week in southeastern Congo, a local activist said on Thursday, the latest flare-up in a three-year ethnic conflict that has killed dozens.

David Ngoy Luhaka, a priest and member of the Diocesan Commission for Justice and Peace, said fighting broke out on Tuesday when a Pygmy militia attacked the town of Manono, leading to reprisals by Bantu militia.
