KIGALI, Rwanda

Four people were killed Monday in fresh protests against UN and Congolese forces in the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to police.

Police fired warning shots to disperse a crowd as they marched toward a UN peacekeeping base in the town of Beni in North Kivu province.

The victims included three protestors and one police officer, police said.

Security forces were involved in running street battles with protestors for most of the day.

Protestors accuse UN peacekeeping force MONUSCO and government forces of failing to protect civilians from rebel attacks and are demanding MONUSCO’s departure.
