Five party headquarters torched in Kinshasa in second day of violence

In tonight's edition: Five party headquarters are torched in Kinshasa in a second day of violence; students and police clash in South Africa over university fee hikes; and a court in Nairobi suspends the construction of a rail line after protests from wildlife conservationists.

The death toll from this week's unrest in DR Congo continues to rise. Human Rights Watch claims that at least 44 people have been killed in clashes linked to protests over suspicions the president is trying to postpone elections so he can keep hold of power beyond his mandate.

Also, protests break out in universities across South Africa over plans to allow them to raise student fees in 2017. Activists keep the pressure up on their call for free education for all.

And conservationists in Kenya win a stop to construction of a railway that's meant to cut through Nairobi National Park. The project is aimed at boosting trade across East Africa but activists say it will destroy an already fragile ecosystem.
