Voting extends into 2nd day in Congo

Voting is extended into a second day in Congo, following an Election Day that was marred by the late delivery of ballots.

In precincts where voting material had arrived on time, counting on Tuesday was underway.

Pockets of violence were reported throughout the country. Five people were killed in the southeastern town of Lubumbashi on Monday after unidentified gunmen opened fire on a truck carrying ballots and on a polling center.

The head of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Congo told reporters that he had received reports of at least two polling stations being set on fire in the Kananga province.

In Kinshasa, poll workers ran out of the school where they were counting ballots late Monday, after police fired tear gas to disperse the angry voters outside.
