In the eastern city of Goma, one civilian and one police officer were killed during the demonstrations, Jose Maria Aranaz, director of the United Nations’ Congo-based Joint Human Rights Office, said by phone from Kisangani Thursday. Across the country, 59 people were arrested and four were injured, the office said.
