Congo election protesters fight police in Kinshasa

KINSHASA (Reuters) – Congolese opposition protesters rampaged down a main highway into Kinshasa on Tuesday, tearing down election posters and demanding the postponement of historic polls scheduled for Sunday.

The several hundred demonstrators, who want Democratic Republic of Congo’s first multi-party polls in 40 years to be delayed because of tensions and alleged flaws, clashed with riot police who beat them with batons while market women scattered.
