US envoy 'harassed' in DRC

20 September 2016, 14:32

Kinshasa - A US envoy has reportedly been harassed in the Democratic Republic of Congo after he called for clarity on the presidential elections, which were schedule for November.

According to BBCthe US special envoy Tom Perriello had tweeted hours earlier saying that the Congolese people deserved to know the fate of the presidential elections. 

The US embassy in the DRC confirmed on Twitter that Perriello had been harassed at an airport in the central African country.

Over 50 people, including two police officers, were reported dead on Monday in clashes between protesters and security forces in the capital.    

A witness was quoted as saying that one of the policemen was torched to death as protesters demanded that Kabila step down at the end of his presidential term.

Protesters torched cars and set up barricades in one of the capital's main roads, as police fired tear gas to disperse the crowds.

The government earlier said that at least 17 had died in the violence in Kinshasa ahead of a planned opposition rally, but had warned that the death toll could rise.
