Violence mars DR Congo election build-up

Tension is high in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, after violence at pre-election rallies left at least two people dead.

Supporters of President Joseph Kabila and the main opposition candidate, Etienne Tshisekedi, pelted each other with stones and police fired tear gas.

Final rallies were due to be held on Saturday ahead of Monday's parliamentary and presidential vote.

But police banned them at the last minute after the violence. Will Ross reports.
