Protesters gather in Congo capital as Kabila’s mandate expires

“Protesters gathered in Democratic Republic of Congo’s capital and at least one other city, defying a ban on demonstrations against the president’s plans to stay in office past the end of his term on Monday. Security forces blocked access to Kinshasa University, facing off against groups waving red cards telling President Joseph Kabila to go, as time ticked down to the official close of his mandate at midnight. Militia fighters raided a jail in eastern Congo’s Butembo trying to free prisoners, triggering clashes that killed a South African U.N. peacekeeper, a police officer and five attackers, officials said”
