The Congolese army worked with militia groups to massacre hundreds of villagers - that's the claim of a new report into the bloodshed in the region of Beni in DR Congo. It alleges a complex collaboration between commanders and warlords in a struggle for power that cost civilians their lives.

Meanwhile, authorities in DR Congo open an inquiry into the killing of dozens of Burundian refugees. At least 36 were killed in violence over the weekend.

And in Ivory Coast, fresh clashes erupt between police and students in Abidjan. Protesters are unhappy with an increase in enrolment fees for the new academic year.
