A bomb attack on UN peacekeepers has left one child dead, and 32 Indian troops injured in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to the MONUSCO mission.

According to the Provincial Governor an eight-year-old girl and one peacekeeper had been killed in the explosion.

Attacks using explosives are rare in and there were no immediate claims of responsibility.
