DR Congo police on Wednesday dispersed thousands of supporters of powerful opposition figure Moise Katumbi, President Joseph Kabila's leading rival, who is being grilled over government allegations he had hired foreign mercenaries.
The action came after Katumbi's backers forced their way into a court in the southern city of Lubumbashi where he was due to appear for a second hearing over his alleged use of mercenaries, including Americans.
