Members of the Secteur du Rail Aunts 'Kuluna' (street children gang) fight with members of the Likonzi Kuluna (unseen) on November 16, 2012 in a street of Lingwala, north of Kinshasa. The modus operandi of “kuluneurs” is the following: either in broad daylight or at night, a pack of martial arts practitioners (called “pombas”) armed with clubs, machetes and other blunt objects raid and occupy a city square wherein they seize from passers-by and street vendors any valuable they can lay their hands on. Victims who resist are hacked with machetes, clubbed or stabbed. Some victims have died from injuries sustained in those kuluna raids and many a warlord kuluneur have has been gunned down by the Police d’Intervention Rapide (PIR). AFP PHOTO / JUNIOR D.
