Protests in Congo Following Renewed Clashes with Rebels
Protesters gathered for a second day in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) city of Goma on Friday.
Protesters accuse President Kabila of incompetence over this failure to effectively deal with the threat from M23, a rebel group which some claim is funded by the government of Rwanda. The protests followed renewed clashes between rebels and government forces close to Goma, after weeks of calm had raised hopes for peace.
Police fired tear gas at a group of several hundred protesters calling for Kabila to go, who had blocked off roads in Goma city.
