Congo opposition calls off protest

Supporters of Congolese President Denis Sassou Nguesso rally in Brazzaville on October 10, 2015 to back the president's controversial bid to change the constitutionCongo’s opposition has said it will obey a ban on public demonstrations after deadly street violence, cancelling a Friday protest against a referendum that could allow the president to extend his three decades in office. The country has been rocked by protests ahead of the planned referendum on Sunday to amend the constitution to allow long-ruling President Denis Sassou Nguesso to run for another term in 2016. “We decided to cancel our meeting tomorrow because the Brazzaville prefecture told us that all gatherings were banned on Friday in the public square,” opposition leader Mpouele Paul-Marie told AFP Thursday.
