Fifteen people have been killed in eastern DR Congo in clashes between troops and rebels loyal to a former general, the army said Monday.

It said the fighting was continuing Monday in Fizi, a region of South Kivu, a mineral-rich province which is prone to ethnic tensions.



The unrest is another front in the push by rebels to oust President Joseph Kabila as the poverty-stricken Democratic Republic of Congo limps towards a much-delayed presidential election slated for December 23.

Three soldiers drowned in a river with their weapons,” he added.

The clashes pit the army against rebels loyal to a former army general, William Amuri Yakutumba, opposed to Kabila.
