At least 17 people have died in the Democratic Republic of Congo during protests calling for President Joseph Kabila to step down.
Three of them were police officers, one of whom was burnt alive, according to the Interior Minister, Evariste Boshab.
Protesters set up barricades and torched cars on one of the main roads in Kinshasa, the country’s capital.
Police fired tear gas to disperse the demonstrators. One witness said police fired live ammunition into the crowd.
The bodies of people who had died were seen lying in the streets after protests ended.
