At least 14 people have been killed and 30 others wounded in a road accident in Congo.
The incident took place on a busy crossroad in the country’s capital Kinshasa when a truck carrying heavy construction materials rammed into several cars and people.
Several vehicles, including small public buses, were crushed by the truck and the heavy rocks that fell out of the vehicle when it tipped over the edge of the road.
Young children are among the dead.
Interior Minister, Gilbert Kokande, who joined Longodo at the scene, said the government would seek to take “preventive measures” to crack down on speeding along a busy sloping stretch of road near the university.
