DR Congo Rocked By Growing Protests

BBC: DR Congo poll protest: Opposition HQs, including UPDS office, torched

The headquarters of three opposition parties in the Democratic Republic of Congo have been torched in the capital and two charred bodies have been found at one on of them, a BBC reporter says.

The attacks followed Monday's deadly clashes between police and opposition supporters demanding that President Joseph Kabila step down by December.

The office of the main opposition UPDS was among those set ablaze in Kinshasa.

He has not yet commented on his plans.
