Never reproach the plight of another,
For it happens to many men:
Strong desire may stupefy heroes,
Dull the wits of the wise

At least two civilians have been killed as violence erupted ahead of protests in the Democratic Republic of Congo on Sunday.

Police fired shots and tear gas to break up a Catholic mass and arrested altar boys who were among protesters gathering at the church to rally against President Joseph Kabila.

Ida Sawyer, Central Africa director at Human Rights Watch, said two men had been killed outside the church.
