At least 47 people have reportedly been killed in clashes in the past three days between militias and Congolese armed forces in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a civil society source told Anadolu Agency.

The clashes between rebel and armed forces first erupted on Friday in the town of Luiza, in the Kasai-Central province, a member of a civil society organization said late Monday on condition of anonymity due to security reasons.

“There were 13 deaths on Friday, and the fighting continued on Saturday with a death toll of 25 and on Sunday there were nine deaths,” the source said, adding that it was still impossible to identify the victims.

Clement Apakachwa Mitendi, administrator of Luiza territory, confirmed the clashes but did not disclose a death toll. Clashes reportedly continued on Monday in the village of Musambayi.
