Two days of unrest in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s southern opposition stronghold of Kasai have left nine people dead, local sources said on Tuesday.

The anti-government Kamwina Nsapu militia “killed four people Monday in the village of Bata Ishama” in Kasai province, local administrator Jacopo Pembe Longo told AFP.

The same militia, wearing red headbands and armed with rifles and machetes, on Tuesday “killed five other people in Kakenge”, a village some 12 kilometres (seven miles) from Bata Ishama, Longo said.

Local priest Wilfrid Imboyo told AFP the fighters had also “set fire to a hospital and more than 30 houses”.

He added local people sought refuge inside the church during the clashes.
