Thousands rally in DRC capital against electoral commission pick

Published
Police have used tear gas to break up protests in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s capital.
Thousands marched against the recent appointment of a new electoral commissioner, a move church leaders and rights groups say was illegal.
The demonstrators believe President Felix Tshisekedi is tightening his grip on power.
