Gunfire in Kinshasa after mass by anti-govt cardinal

Kinshasa, Jan 12, 2018 (AFP)

Police fired warning shots on Friday to disperse a crowd gathered in front of a cathedral in Kinshasa after a mass by prominent government critic Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo, an AFP journalist said.
Armed officers arrived at the gates of the cathedral as worshippers were leaving a service to commemorate the victims of a crackdown on marches last month calling for the removal of President Joseph Kabila.
