DR Congo Police Reportedly Enter Parliament Building After Fresh Violence

Democratic Republic of Congo President Felix Tshisekedi dissolved the ruling coalition on Monday after announcing that he would be forming a new coalition that might require the dissolving of parliament and the holding of fresh elections.

Police have entered the parliament building in the DR Congo capital of Kinshasa on Tuesday amid reports of unrest and violence inside the legislative chamber, AFP has reported, citing one of its journalists.

At least one person was said to have been injured in clashes involving the throwing of projectiles inside the chamber between supporters of President Tshisekedi and lawmakers from the parliamentary majority loyal to his predecessor, Joseph Kabila.
