4 Citing UN sources, Radio Okapi, which is supported by UN Organisation Stabilisation Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, said the assailants attacked a military post near Kananga’s airport in the early morning hours before disappearing into the surrounding bush.

5 Local authorities were not immediately reachable for comment on the attack.

6 More than a decade after the end of a 1998 to 2003 war in which millions of people died, mostly from hunger and disease, militia attacks are on the rise across the vast, mineral-rich nation.

7 The violence comes amid a political crisis linked to President Joseph Kabila’s refusal to step down when his mandate expired a year ago and has raised concerns that Congo could again slide into all-out war.
