Five Dead in Anti-Kabila Protests in DRC

At least five people were killed in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Sunday, the UN said, as the authorities cracked down on a protest against President Joseph Kabila. Witnesses said security forces fired live rounds and tear gas in Kinshasa to disperse demonstrators who gathered after Catholic church leaders called for a mass peaceful demonstration against Kabila’s 17-year rule, News24 reported. In all, the UN peacekeeping mission Monusco said at least five people were killed in Kinshasa and 33 others injured nationwide, while 69 people were arrested. Sunday’s bloody crackdown comes three weeks after a similar march on New Year’s Eve ended in deadly violence, during which organizers said a dozen people were killed.
