Four dead in Congo as protesters defy clampdown

Four people were killed and 10 injured Tuesday in the Republic of Congo, according to officials, as demonstrators braved a government clampdown and took to the streets to protest the president’s bid for a third term in office. The violence prompted urgent calls for calm from a visiting senior US official and Amnesty International. Clashes erupted after authorities banned a protest rally against next Sunday’s referendum on President Denis Sassou Nguesso’s bid to extend a three-decade stay in office.
