About 50 people are feared dead after a gold mine collapsed in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, local authorities said Saturday.

Provincial governor Theo Ngwabidje Kasi deplored “the tragic deaths of 50 people, most of them young”, while Kamituga mayor Alexandre Bundya said “we are not yet sure of the exact number” of victims.
