At least 12 fishermen have died and a dozen more are missing after deadly clashes on Lake Edward, which is shared by Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, a Congolese official said Monday. "The 12 bodies of our compatriots are still floating on Edward Lake" after violent exchanges between the Ugandan navy and DRC armed forces, said Muhindo Kyakwa, a senior official of the DRC province of North Kivu. Some 30 people have now either died or disappeared after the clashes erupted late last week.
