Eighteen people were killed on Friday when a truck carrying goods and passengers overturned on a major highway in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the government confirmed.
The accident happened at Bulambika, on the highway linking Bukavu and Kisangani, in the northeast district of Bunyakiri.
“The official toll on the basis of the report from Bunyakiri is eighteen deaths,” Luke Mulimbalimba, interior minister of South Kivu province, told reporters.
He said 12 people were taken to hospital in Bukavu in a rescue operation involving two helicopters and three ambulances.
The accident happened because of the poor condition of the road, according to Jean Mwanuka, in charge of the administrative district of Bunyakiri.
Deadly road accidents are frequent in DRC, where excess speed, overloading and poor vehicle maintenance are also factors.

Abiy Ahmed wins the 2019 Nobel Peace Award
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.
Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.
“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”
It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”
The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
