More than 100 schools in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s eastern region of Beni have been closed for almost two weeks amid a protest by teachers.
Dozens of school staff refuse to return to class following the killing of three teachers during a jihadist attack last month.
The staff, coordinated by unions, have said they will only begin teaching once the results of an investigation into the attack are published.
At least 26 people were killed by machetes when a militia group stormed the Masosi locality overnight on 24 October.
Congolese Army spokesperson Captain Anthony Mualushayi told the BBC that five people are still missing following the attack.
The army attributed the killings to an Islamist group called the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), originally from Uganda. END.
