 Five people were killed during protests in Congo

Protests against the United Nations took place in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, as a result of which at least five people were killed and about 50 injured.

According to Reuters, the protesters opposed the peacekeeping mission of MONUSCO (United Nations Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo) for failing to protect civilians in the region.

Hundreds of demonstrators in the city of Goma are known to have attacked and robbed a MONUSCO train. They demanded that the mission leave the country.

The peacekeepers fired tear gas and opened fire on the crowd.
