Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Jan 3, 2018 / 00:08 am
Eight people were killed and more than 120 were arrested in the Democratic Republic of the Congo during church-organized protests held Sunday calling for President Joseph Kabila to step down.
The dead were killed Dec. 31, 2017 by security forces. Seven were in the capital, Kinshasa, and one was in Kananga.
The country's bishops have asked that Kabila not seek a third term as president. He has been in power since 2001.
His two-term limit expired in December 2016, but he has refused to step down and has not allowed elections to be held.
