One killed, four injured as DR Congo police fire on banned protestsOne person was killed and at least four injured as police fired live bullets and tear gas to disperse banned protests calling on DR Congo President Joseph Kabila to stand down. The church-backed protests in the Democratic Republic of Congo come after months of tension sparked by Kabila’s prolonged rule and long-delayed elections in the vast and chronically unstable country. In the capital Kinshasa, one man was killed and two people seriously injured as police opened fire on demonstrators.
