TEHRAN, Jul. 26 (MNA) – At least five people were killed and about 50 wounded during a second day of violent anti-United Nations protests in Democratic Republic of Congo's eastern city of Goma on Tuesday, a government spokesman said.

UN peacekeepers shoot two demonstrators dead as protesters threw rocks, vandalized and set fire to UN buildings, Reuters reported.

Some stormed the houses of UN workers who were evacuated from the city in a convoy of vehicles escorted by the army, the report added.
