The Democratic Republic of Congo has condemned what it called the violent expulsion by Angolan authorities of thousands of Congolese citizens during a crackdown on informal diamond mining.

The Congolese migrants and officials have said dozens of people were killed during a crackdown this month, but Angola strongly denied this charge.

DRC government spokesperson, Lambert Mende, is quoted describing the developments in Angola as human rights violations and the loss of human lives caused by the expulsions. The comments from Kinshasa are expected to increase tensions between the two countries.
