    At least 39 people were killed when soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo opened fire on Burundian refugees last month.

    Almost 100 people were wounded in the violence that happened after a protest held by the refugees.

    The Congolese army says it began firing after the refugees attacked its men. But the refugees deny this.

    Al Jazeera's Malcolm Webb reports from Kamaniola, Democratic Republic of Congo.
