KINSHASA: At least 30 people including one U.N. peacekeeper were killed in clashes pitting the army and U.N. troops against Ugandan Islamist rebels in northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo, local sources said on Monday.

The violence on Sunday underlines persistent instability in an area where local activists say at least 500 civilians have been killed since October 2014, most in overnight raids by rebels carried out with machetes and hatchets.
