Kinshasa (AFP) - At least 14 people were killed when a stampede broke out during a tribute in the Democratic Republic of Congo for a music star who died in February, a spokesman said Friday.

"The provisional toll, which we deeply regret, stands at 14 dead -- including two policemen -- and eight wounded," said Camille Sesep, a spokesman for Bandundu, the native province of the late singer King Kester Emeneya.
