Thirteen people, mainly teenagers, were killed when riots broke out on Monday at a football match in the eastern Congo town of Butembo, the local UN-backed Radio Okapi reported.

It said 35 more youngsters were injured in the rioting, which broke out when the goalkeepers of one of the sides had tried to influence the match through witchcraft.
