KINSHASA: Demo­cratic Repub­lic of Congo (DRC) state se­cu­rity ser­vices shot, burned, beat and hacked to death at least 48 civil­ians and re­port­edly hired thugs to at­tack protests last month against the ex­ten­sion of Pres­i­dent Joseph Ka­bila’s man­date, the UN has said.

The death toll of the two days of vi­o­lence in the cap­i­tal, Kinshasa, which also in­cluded four po­lice of­fi­cers killed by pro­test­ers and one other civil­ian, was higher than dur­ing DRC’s 2011 elec­toral process.
