Huge demo in Congo against president's bid to extend rule

Thousands of people staged a mass demonstration in Congo’s capital Brazzaville Sunday to protest at plans by veteran ruler Denis Sassou Nguesso to try to extend his rule. The rally was the biggest since Sassou Nguesso returned to power in 1997, an AFP journalist said, stretching for almost a kilometre along a main boulevard in the city centre. “Sassou out!” echoed through Brazzaville’s central Boulevard des Armees as some protesters carried banners reading “Sassoufit”, a play on words that sounds like “that is enough” in French, the nation’s official language.
