Dozens dead after DRC boat capsizes

UN officials say the final death toll could reach as high as 80.

    It is unclear what caused the accident, though boats in the DRC are often overcrowded.

    The country's roads and railways are in poor shape, having suffered decades of neglect and boats are a popular mode of travel.
