DR Congo Protests Against Regional force Enter Day Two (News Central TV)

For the second day in a row, hundreds of protesters have taken to the streets of Goma, a city in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. This follows violent clashes between them and Congolese security forces, in which at least two people have been killed.

The demonstrators are accusing the UN and the East African Regional Force of failing to support the Congolese against the M23 rebel group, who have been intensifying their operations in the region.
