( dpa ) - At least 100 people are believed to have drowned after their boat travelling off the coast of the Democratic Republic of Congo capsized in Lake Tanganyika, reports said Wednesday.
It was unclear what caused the accident but a Congolese maritime official told the BBC all passengers were thought to be dead. Some 10 bodies had been recovered.
The boat was travelling from the town of Kalemie to Moba in the south-east.
Boating accidents are common in Congo as the poor road network in the vast country forces Congolese to hop on usually overfilled boats to travel between lakeside cities.
