Protests erupt in Congo over presidential election delays

Goma, DR Congo (CNN)Protests erupted on Thursday in the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo, where presidential elections have been postponed.

Police fired tear gas to disperse dozens of protesters who blocked roads and burned tires in Beni, one of three cities where elections have been delayed due to terrorism and an ongoing Ebola outbreak.
Voters in the cities of Beni, Butembo and Yumbi will not be able to cast their ballots until March, the Independent National Election Commission (CENI) said Wednesday, prompting street protests a day after.
